Mark A Snowdon Memorial Award

The Mark A Snowdon Memorial Award was established in 1987 to honor the outstanding academic achievements of master's students in physiology at the University of Cincinnati. The award is given annually to one, or shared by two, outstanding students who best exemplify the ideals and excellence exhibited by Mark, thus emulating his accomplishments.

Mark was an aspiring medical student enrolled in the master's program at the University of Cincinnati. In 1987 he was returning from an interview at the Hershey Medical Center when he was involved in a tragic automobile accident and died the next day from his injuries. The University of Cincinnati recognized Mark's efforts by awarding him the master of science degree posthumously.
