The Belmont Philosophy Department offers two major awards each year to students: The Virginia Osborn Outstanding Student in Philosophy Award and the Stacy Awalt Essay Award. Each year, the department faculty present the Outstanding Student award to one person. The award recognizes the student's contribution to the entire life of the philosophical community at Belmont University. In naming a person to this honor we celebrate the student's conscientious class preparation and participation, dedicated involvement in co-curricular lectures and conversations with others in the department, and the student's love of philosophy.
