HUNTSVILLE, Alabama — The University of Alabama in Huntsville's Honors College received a $100,000 gift to fund the UAH Prevost Scholars Program, the university announced on Wednesday.
Stanley E. Prevost, co-founder of Phase IV Systems, Inc., is a longtime benefactor to the Honors College.
The program was developed by Prevost alongside UAH Honors College Dean Dr. William Wilkerson. The two designed the program to function as a "Honors within Honors program" in an effort to attract top STEM students.
“The Stanley E. Prevost Honors Scholarship will allow the Honors College to attain one of its most important goals by effectively creating a higher caliber of Honors Student within an already rigorous Honors curriculum,” Dr. Wilkerson says. “This is a unique and singular program that sets the UAH Honors College apart from all others. To my knowledge, there is no other ‘Honors within Honors’ program that includes both a scholarship and a link to graduate education. We can never express all of our gratitude for this gift which will, in total, amount to $1 million and eventually fund an entire cadre of Prevost Scholars.”
