Clark Ivory, former chair of the University of Utah Board of Trustees, established this prestigious award to recognize extraordinary and influential student-led projects that positively impact the campus and/or the broader community. The prize is an effort to enhance the undergraduate experience and encourage student involvement and leadership. It recognizes one to two students for demonstrating a positive influence on student success and/or fostering efforts that have enabled meaningful change.
Nominations are due Friday, Feb. 22.
You are eligible for this award if you have graduated from the U since 2013, as well as those currently enrolled in undergraduate or graduate degree programs. Self-nominations are welcome.
Nominate yourself or someone you know today.
Here are some of the past recipients of the Ivory Prize:
Johnny Le, a graduate student in computer science at the University of Utah was recognized for founding Utah’s largest programming marathon, HackTheU, which cultivated creative problem solving among hundreds of participants from across the country. The annual HackTheU event was inspired by similar programs at the University of Pennsylvania, Oxford and Stanford universities. To launch the program, Le brought together campus partners from the Medical School, Sorenson Impact Center, colleges of Engineering and Science, the Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute, Auxiliary Business Development and more. Highlights of projects include an augmented reality application for learning to interact with autistic children and a musical space odyssey in virtual reality.
Submissions will be open until Jan. 31, 2019, 10 a.m. Students may submit art entries by dropping off a flash drive containing the art piece to:
HRE office, Benchmark Plaza, Building 822, 5 Heritage Center

This book, edited by Myntti and Jessalyn Zoom from the Library of Congress, includes valuable information and case studies from 28 different institutions that work on digital preservation activities within their libraries.
The goals of the program are to create meaningful public service programs based on university faculty expertise to benefit groups and individuals throughout the community, foster an appreciation of service work by academics and to create relationships and connections based on tolerance and understanding.
Funds up to $8,000 will be used to “buy” a professor out of one university semester-long class to allow the creation of a community-sited project. Additional funding up to $1,500 will be provided to the selected professor to facilitate project development and $1,000 to the community agency that is partnering in the project.
Please submit to the Tanner Humanities Center (email@example.com) a two-page proposal that outlines the project and the agency involved. Projects may, for example, focus on literacy, art and music education, history, health, economic development and environmental concerns. Please attach a proposed budget for your project. In addition, include a copy of your curriculum vitae and letters of support from your department chair and the agency in which your project will be sited. A sample proposal and budget can be found on the Tanner Center’s website.
Project proposals should be submitted by Feb. 15, 2019.
