Program in Comparative Literature Master Academic Achievement Award

The prize is annually awarded to one MA student who best embodies the academic values that our Program particularly cherishes: original and critical thinking; commitment to learning; respect for, and interest in, the work of others. A monetary award and a diploma will recognize both collegiality and intellectual excellence. In May, after the students' final presentations, a committee composed of the Chair, the Graduate Director, and the instructors of COLT 100, COLT 101 and COLT 103 will decide to whom to bestow this award.
