Deborah A. Coquillon Memorial Award

deborah coquillon portraitThe Deborah A. Coquillon Memorial Award was established in 2011 by the family of Deborah Anne Bonk Coquillon. Deb dedicated more than twenty years to the students and faculty of Syracuse University, including in the Honors Program and as Director of Career Exploration Services in the College of Arts and Sciences. She was a devoted advocate for students’ success at Syracuse University and in life. In the last years of her life, Deb lived in Washington, D.C., where she was a dedicated public servant.

The award will be given to an exceptional College of Arts and Sciences graduating senior who demonstrates the need for financial assistance in order to pursue his or her post-graduation goals. Just as Deb encouraged each student she advised to pursue his or her unique gifts and talents, the selection committee invites applications from students with a variety of backgrounds, interests, and career goals. Like Deb, the awardee should be committed to assisting and/or advocating for others.
