William and Margaret Nutting Award

The purpose of the William and Margaret Nutting Scholarship is to recognize and reward achievement of excellence by an undergraduate at the University of Massachusetts in the biological sciences. The award is named in honor of the late distinguished zoology professor and his wife, an artist who assisted him. The funds for the scholarship were generously donated by Professor Nutting’s former students. The award is given to freshman, sophomore, or junior students who have an overall grade point average of at least 3.0 in both general and biological science courses after a minimum of 12 science credits have been completed. Applicants must submit a resume (no more than 2 pages); a one-page statement describing their contributions to society beyond the boundaries of the laboratory or field; two letters of reference that address the applicant’s “high moral standards and commitment to excellence as a member of the community.”
