Clarence C. Dammon Dean's Scholars Program

The College of Liberal Arts Dean’s Scholars Program was established in 1976 to recognize the academic achievement of select, first-year students. The program has been renamed the Clarence E. Dammon Dean’s Scholars Program in recognition of a gift from Jim and Marilynn Dammon in honor of Jim's father, Clarence E. Dammon. Incoming CLA freshman are invited to apply to the program.

Dammon Dean's Scholars enroll in a seminar course taught by Dean David Reingold in their first semester. Participants then have the opportunity to apply to do research as Margo Katherine Wilke Interns in spring of their freshman year.
