James N. Snyder Award for Scholastic Achievement / ICCP James N. Snyder Memorial Award
For CS and LAS students only – see details below
The James N. Snyder Award is traditionally for current CS sophomores and is made based on academic merit. Traditionally, one award is given to a student in the College of Engineering and one to a student in LAS (Math/CS, Statistics/CS, CS + X). The ICCP James N. Snyder Memorial Award may be given to a student who has an interest in software development; traditionally juniors are recognized. Before he served as CS department head (1970-1985), Professor James N. Snyder, who was originally a physicist, was a programmer for ILLIAC I and helped design ILLIAC II.
