OST RESEARCH AWARD: Each year the department hosts an Undergraduate Research Competition that honors the memory of Professor John W. P. Ost. Professor Ost served as chair of the Department of Psychology from 1973 until 1977, and continued to serve as an active faculty member until his untimely death in 1988. The John Ost Undergraduate Research Competition in particular commemorates John's dedication to undergraduate research training.

PASSEY PRIZE/UAB PSYCHOLOGY DEPARTMENT ACHIEVEMENT AWARD:
Each year, the Department of Psychology presents these awards to students who have excelled in their pursuit of their psychology major. The Passey Prize for the Outstanding Student in Psychology at UAB is awarded to the psychology major judged to have shown the best overall level of accomplishment in psychology--not just in terms of grades, but also in terms of participation in other opportunities offered by the department, especially research. The Passey Prize includes a cash award.
The UAB Psychology Department Achievement Award is awarded to the psychology major judged to have shown the most outstanding achievement during his or her years in college. This award emphasizes academic performance and accomplishments, but it also considers participation and leadership in department and university activities, service to the community, and hardships or adverse life situations that the student has overcome.
Winners of undergraduate awards are selected by an awards committee appointed by the Director of Undergraduate Studies. In any given year, the committee may
1. decline to name a winner of either award;
2. give both awards to the same individual; or
3. name more than one winner of either award, either ranked or unranked.
