Morris and Lola Wasserstein Awards

Deadline: Last Monday of March by 12:00 noon

Honors students on the writing or editorial staff of the Michigan Daily are eligible to apply for the Morris and Lola Wasserstein Awards.

The Wasserstein Awards are made possible by a generous gift from Mr. Bruce Wasserstein to honor his father and mother. Investment banker Bruce Wasserstein (1947-2009) was an Honors graduate who had a great affection for the University of Michigan, the Honors Program, and the Michigan Daily.

Awards vary in amount but can exceed $1000/term for one or two terms and are based on the applicant's overall academic record, quality of work done at the Daily, and personal statement.

Applicants should submit:

(1)  A two page personal statement discussing your academic and career plans, work at the Daily, and plans for the prize money.

(2) An updated resume or CV.

(3) A list of no more than three favorite articles that you've written for the Daily (if applicable).

Please save all applications materials as a single PDF entitled "LastName_FirstName_WassersteinApplication" and send it to
