The 2021 Tower Awards Ceremony will take place on Thursday, April 8th and 9th, at the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center. The event will take place during four small ceremonies based on award categories. The event will adhere to strict physical distancing protocols set by the institution.
For 27 years, the Tower Awards have celebrated the academic achievements of traditionally underrepresented students at Georgia Tech.
Of the more than 1,200 students eligible to receive a 2019 Tower Award, nearly 300 gathered for the annual recognition ceremony. “Our students set the standard for what the next generation can accomplish with a high-quality education and community support,” said Tower Coordinator Denise Ocasio Thomas.
“Awards like these speak volumes to the impact and value that underrepresented students bring to both the Georgia Tech Community and around the world."
