The Freedman Prize for Student-Faculty Collaborative Research

The Freedman Prize, established by Allen and Judy Freedman in 2002, recognizes superior student-faculty collaborative work that prepares for the senior project required of all Hartwick students. Because this work can begin as early as the student's first year on campus, the competition is open to students in all four classes. The prizes also are open to all majors.
