Stanford students can receive university awards for their academic, research, and writing excellence. The student awards included below are administered or supported by offices of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education.
The Deans' Award recognizes up to ten undergraduates per year for their outstanding academic contributions.
Phi Beta Kappa
Phi Beta Kappa is a nationwide society honoring students for the excellence and breadth of their undergraduate scholarly achievements.
To be considered, a student must take three courses of 3 units or more at Stanford with a grade of ‘B-’ or better in three domains of knowledge. These domains are humanities; science, engineering, and math; and social sciences. Students’ academic records are automatically reviewed, so no special action is required for students who wish to be considered for membership.
