Kranich Prize

The Wilmer L. and Margaret M. Kranich Prize honors students majoring in engineering or science who best exemplify excellence in the humanities and arts and the integration of these disciplines into their undergraduate experience. This includes, but is not limited to, course work, independent projects such as the humanities and arts project, and extracurricular activities. The award is open to students who are majors in any discipline other than humanities and arts and who are completing their junior year or senior year. Wilmer Kranich was dean of graduates studies at WPI, and Margaret Kranich taught a variety of courses at WPI over the years. The Kranich Prize was established in 1994.
