The College of Arts and Letters offers two Varg-Sullivan Awards: one for Outstanding Achievement in the Arts and one for Outstanding Achievement in the Letters.
Paul Varg and Richard Sullivan are former deans in the College of Arts and Letters who dedicated their professional lives to excellence in the College. This award endowment has been established in their name.
Graduate students in the College of Arts and Letters are eligible to be nominated for the award by their major unit. Recipients are selected based on best performance/exhibition at a national or international event in the Arts and best presentation at a national or international event or best published article in the Letters.
