Announcing the Frank Sampson Excellence in Social Theory Award

This award is given in the spring to a graduating senior who has excelled in social theory and intends to go to graduate school. Samuel 'Frank' Sampson was a founding member of UVM’s AKD and a professor and Chair in the Sociology Department, whose interests were many, but whose passion was social theory. It is hoped, through this award, to support and encourage students in the academic commitment to the development of sociological theory. This award will be paid to the student upon enrollment in graduate school.
