    Biographical/Historical note

    The Firestone Medals for Excellence in Undergraduate Research recognizes graduating seniors nominated by their academic programs or departments for undertaking honors projects in engineering and the social, physical and natural sciences.
    The Robert M. Golden Medals for Excellence in Humanities and Creative Arts recognizes students completing honors projects in the humanities or creative projects in the fine arts. The Golden Medal is awarded to the top ten percent of all honors theses in the humanities, senior projects or performance in the arts.
    The Kenedy prize is given annually for outstanding honors theses in the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences and engineering. Recipients of this award have accomplished significantly advanced research in the field and have demonstrated strong potential for publication in peer-reviewed scholarly works. The prize was established in recognition of David M. Kennedy, professor emeritus of history, and faculty co-director of Stanford's Bill Lane Center for the American West, and his longstanding commitment to mentoring undergraduate writers.
