Since 2008, the American Cultures Student Prize has recognized and celebrated undergraduate achievements within American Cultures courses. The prize is awarded annually to undergraduates for projects they develop in an American Cultures course that promotes understanding of U.S. race, ethnicity, and culture and exemplifies a standard of excellence in scholarship. Prior award-winning submissions have included essays, poetry, films, reflection statements on live performances, among other work produced for American Cultures courses. For examples of past recipients of this prize, please visit our eScholarship student prize website or the examples included towards the bottom of this page.
Recipients of the American Cultures Student Prize will receive a $1,000 award and have their submission published on the American Cultures eScholarship site(link is external), and permanently indicated as a recipient of the American Cultures website. This year, recipients will also be honored in a virtual ceremony.
