Richard Russell Awards

The Richard B. Russell Awards for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching recognize excellence in undergraduate instruction by faculty members in their early academic careers. The awards were first presented in 1992 by the Richard B. Russell Foundation to honor Richard B. Russell, a distinguished Georgian and university alumnus who had a love for new knowledge and appreciation of our nation’s youth. Three Richard B. Russell Awards for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching are presented each year. Awardees receive a $10,000 cash award from the Richard B. Russell Foundation.
