Three undergraduate students were awarded the 2021 Clark Award.

The faculty of Geography was extremely impressed by their academic accomplishments, active and inclusive engagement in our classrooms, and work in promoting the undergraduate geography community in various ways.

We all wish them the best of luck as they move forward after graduation.

This award is named in honor of A.H. Clark, the professor who was instrumental in founding the Rutgers Department of Geography in 1949.
