The Clio-Melpomene Prize
A prize of $2,500 will be awarded to assist aspiring poets and/or historians after graduation. Applicants must be graduating seniors. There are no GPA or citizenship restrictions, and the work need not be completed for a course, independent study, or major. Peter Viereck, Professor Emeritus of History and winner of the Pulitzer Prize for poetry, has endowed this annual prize for "a young woman who follows her private star in poetic style or historical interpretation." Application materials are due Monday, May 5, by 5 pm. in the Career Development Center. Applicants should submit a sample of work in poetry and/or history. The sample should be large enough to fully represent the applicant's work. Also required is a short (one- to three-page) personal statement, addressing the work, aspirations for continued work in the field, plans after graduation, and any other information that is relevant to the applicant's work and future plans. There is no application form. Optional are one or two recommendations from faculty or other mentors who know the work well. The judging committee is made up of members of the English and history departments. Professor Viereck does not sit on the committee. The prize winner will be announced shortly before commencement. Questions? Contact Katya King at x2080.
