Manuscripts & Archives Diane Kaplan Memorial Senior Essay Prizes
Manuscripts and Archives offers two student prizes each year. One is awarded for an outstanding senior essay on Yale. The second is awarded for an outstanding senior essay based on research done in Manuscripts and Archives. Each student will receive a $500 cash prize, which will be presented at the student's residential college commencement ceremony. Essays from any department are eligible for consideration and students are invited to nominate themselves for these prizes.
