The Kapp Award was established in recognition of the contributions to the Academy of Ronald O. Kapp, research botanist, professor of biology, and provost at Alma College until his death in 1990. Professor Kapp, strongly committed to involving undergraduate students in research, served as president of the Academy for two terms.

The Michigan Academy is a nonprofit organization founded in 1894 to “promote research and diffuse knowledge”. The Michigan Academy’s annual conference draws presenters from several states and Canada, as well as, scholars from across the state of Michigan. There were nearly 450 presenters at the 2013 conference. This multi-disciplinary conference includes presentations in over 30 disciplines in the sciences, humanities, and social sciences.
