Nominate yourself for a cash prize! Deadline May, 20th

Have you written a term paper in one of your Cinema Studies classes this past year (Spring 15 – Winter 16) that you’re particularly proud of?  Would you like to win $500 and a bit of glory (and a line on your CV)?  If so, submit your paper for this year’s James Ivory Undergraduate Essay Award.

The Cinema Studies Program announces the annual James Ivory Undergraduate Essay Awards. These awards recognize excellence of research and writing in term papers in major-related courses. A cash award of up to $500 is given, and the awardee is recognized at the Cinema Studies commencement ceremony in June. Essay requirements and submission guidelines can be found on the Cinema Studies website here.

The deadline to submit the application form and an essay from a course taken in Spring 2015, Fall 2015, or Winter 2016, is noon on Friday, May 20, 2016.

Cinema Studies majors may self-nominate one of your essays by completing the online application form and uploading the paper.
