Undergraduate prizes and graduate students awards are given annually through the department and the Graduate School. They include:
- The Ann Belsky Moranis Memorial Prize is awarded to a concentrator who has excelled in work undertaken in the concentration, shown intellectual generosity and curiosity, and taken advantage of the strengths of the department in imaginative ways.
- The Kermit S. Champa Memorial Fund commemorates Professor Champa who taught in the department from 1969 to 2004, and is awarded to graduate students at an early stage in their studies to encourage first-hand experience of art and architecture to aid in identifying a meaningful dissertation topic.
- The Rebecca Molholt Vanel Flexible Fund honors the memory of Professor Molholt Vanel who taught in the department from 2008 to 2014. It commemorates her deep interest in travel and museum experience.
