Among the winners so far is American political science student, Megan Huber, who was selected as the European Politics Program Distinguished Student for the Fall 2012 semester. Her instructor, Jakob Buksti, described her as "highly diligent, exemplary in her performance on assignments and during the study tour, and committed to the success of the program, as demonstrated by her service as a class representative".

Scott Carpenter, a visiting faculty from Carleton College, was similarly full of praise about European Humanities winner, Daniele Arad-Neeman: “Every now and then you get a student who is like yeast: her presence elevates the whole class. That's what Daniele Arad-Neeman did in the France section of Memory and Identity. Always engaged, never pretentious, Daniele participated in discussions, helped lead group work, set the tone during our study tours, and performed at the highest level in her exams and final paper.”
