$1,000 Ricco Ethics Competition open to HPS students

Nick and Anna Ricco, long-time UNT donors, created an ethics scholarship competition in 2011. It is open to all students in the 13 colleges and schools at the University of North Texas.

The ethics competition was created to promote intellectual debate and discussion on ethics as related to students’ areas of study at UNT, their field of vocation or their avocation. The goal is to stimulate the applicants to new heights of reasoning and self-discipline. The ultimate result will be a higher level of ethical understanding in one’s area of study and daily life. It is the hope of the donors that students will recognize and better comprehend the need for a higher understanding of ethics in their personal and professional lives.

Awards of $1,000 each will be granted to one student from each college or school at UNT.

The deadline for entries is 11:59 p.m. January 31, 2018. Recognition will be given at University Honors Day in spring 2018.
