The College of Natural Sciences (CNS) has announced the establishment of the Mahoney Alumni Award for the iCons Program, an annual award to be bestowed to one alumna or alumnus of the Integrated Concentration in Science (iCons) Program who demonstrates application of the attitudes, knowledge and skills developed in the program and who has shown engagement and support of the iCons community since graduation.

The recipient will receive a $5,000 award, presented at the annual iCons Senior Celebration. It is the first alumni award for iCons graduates.

The three Mahoney brothers – Robert, Richard and William – received their degrees in chemistry from UMass Amherst. They went on to become leaders in their own industries and have served as high-level alumni advisers to the campus.

The inaugural prize winner will be announced in the spring of 2018.
