The John F. Boyle Prize in Ecology and Environmental Sciences Fund was created in 1992 by gifts from the family of John F. Boyle and from friends and graduates of the B.S. program in Ecology and Environmental Sciences. The Fund was changed in 2006 from a scholarship to a prize to recognize the top graduating senior in Ecology and Environmental Sciences.
