Research & Thesis Awards

The Department of Economics and Business presents several awards every year. Some of these awards are grants and some are recognitions for outstanding work. All theses are automatically entered for thesis awards; other awards, such as the Van Skilling Award for independent research, require specific applications.  

Student Achievement Awards

The David Preston Memorial Award is awarded to a sophomore or rising junior who has not only excelled in their studies but also to a student who, by being recognized with this award early in their Colorado College career, might be motivated to achieve even more during their last years in college. This award was funded in memory of David Preston, by his parents. David was a student that was both an Economics major and also was a paraprofessional in the department for several years.
