The Alfred M. Dufty, Jr. Award was created to honor the memory of Dr. Al Dufty, much-loved friend and mentor to many at Boise State University. The funds made available through this award are used to pay the travel expenses of one or two outstanding graduate students each year, enabling them to present their research results at a professional meeting.
