This award was established by EAS graduate Rutt Bridges, to allow undergraduate students the freedom to undertake their own research project, in a direction that leads to a publication under the mentorship of
EAS faculty. The idea behind this initiative is to emulate the undergraduate experience that helped Rutt Bridges prepare for his success in industry.
