The College of Arts and Sciences announces the 2013 competition for the Palmer-Brandon Prize in the Humanities.  The Palmer-Brandon Prize is funded by a gift made to the College of Arts and Sciences in the 1980s.  This year we will again make up to 2 awards of $20,000 each.  The prizes are deposited to the winners’ bursar accounts and are taxable.   Select departments in the humanities are invited to nominate their best student(s) for this competition (See College’s Scholarship and Awards webpage for complete list).  Students may not apply directly for this competition. The prize is based on merit, without regard to financial need.
