HAMILTON UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH
The program was established in 2008 through the generosity of Jane and Jack Hamilton, whose children, Diane Buford and Dan Hamilton ’71, ’79, continue the legacy of support. The funding of this program enables some of Dedman College’s most promising students to collaborate with top faculty researchers and contribute to the creation of knowledge in significant and meaningful ways. This experience is especially valuable for students who will pursue postgraduate studies.
RAY H. MARR UNDERGRADUATE
Inspired by the leadership and vision of Jane and Jack Hamilton, Ray H. Marr has generously provided funds to support undergraduate students working closely with earth sciences faculty on significant research projects through the Institute for the Study of Earth and Man at SMU. Marr scholarships, which are modeled on the Hamilton program, make it possible for some of Dedman College’s brightest scholars to gain high-level research experience through their work with leading scientists.
