All College Awards

The Colorado College Awards in Literature

2014 Application
(Annual awards may total up to $15,000)

[1] The Colorado College Awards in Literature are awarded each spring for distinguished, independent student literary projects. The award was established in 1981 by an anonymous graduate to enable CC students in any major to undertake literary projects, creative and scholarly writing, in the summer between their junior and senior years. The money that goes with it (to a limit of $3500) can be used for travel, relief from the necessity for a summer job, or other purposes. There are also single block awards (up to $1750).

[2] If you are a Colorado College junior now, and expect to graduate next year, you may apply. If you have an idea or literary project that you really want to pursue, we hope to hear from you.

[3] Feel free to talk to members of the committee at any time between now and the deadline for application, which is the last Monday of Block 6. (The winners will be announced at the end of Block 7.) You can find a list of the members of the committee in the English Department Office, Armstrong 245A.

For further information, contact the English Department Administrative Assistant, Paula Pyne at x6853 or ppyne@coloradocollege.edu.
