Past Winners of the Manuscripts and Archives Diane Kaplan Senior Essay Prizes:
Manuscripts & Archives Diane Kaplan Memorial Senior Essay Prizes
Manuscripts and Archives offers two student prizes each year, in memory of our colleague Diane E. Kaplan, who was instrumental in making these prizes available to Yale College seniors. 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. Faculty and others may encourage submissions, but students must submit the essays themselves for prize consideration. The essay prize submission and judging process takes place each year in March-April.
The submission period for 2015 senior essays is closed. No additional submissions will be accepted.
