Have you written a term paper in one of your Cinema Studies classes this past year (Spring 16 – Winter 17) 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 2016, Fall 2016, or Winter 2017, is noon (pst) Friday, April 7, 2017.

Cinema Studies majors may submit the online application form and submit a copy of the essay to be considered for the award.  A faculty member may also nominate a student for an award by submitting the online nomination form.
