The B. Vincent Viscomi Engineering Prize was established in fall 2004 in honor of Professor B. Vincent Viscomi’s retirement after more than 40 years of distinguished service to Lafayette. During this time, Professor Viscomi has been an outstanding scholar, an active participant in service to his profession, and a highly valued colleague. But, Professor Viscomi’s most important legacy is his lasting effect on generations of Lafayette students for whom he was an exceptional teacher and inspiring mentor.

The B. Vincent Viscomi Student Prize shall be presented in September of the recipient’s senior year, based on a combination of demonstrated academic achievement (minimum cumulative G.P.A. of 3.2) and leadership during his or her first three years at Lafayette.  The Prize shall be used for any academic purpose (such as graduate school applications and fees, books, supplies, equipment, or conference or other academic travel).

The award recipients for the B. Vincent Viscomi Student Prize:

Zachary Benedetto ’14, Rebecca Citrin ’14, Hassaan Khan ’13 and Binh Pham ’13, Jacob Dein ’12 and Austin Weidner ’12, Alec Bernstein ’11,  Michael J. Adelman ’10,  Martin Tjioe ’09, Thomas J. Voltz ’09, and Christa A. Kelleher ’08
