Emerging Scholar's Prize (see the video)
Cody Engle, former Chair of our Board of Visitors, seeded the first three years of the new Emerging Scholars Prize. This prize carries the generous stipend of $25,000, no strings attached apart from a one- to two-day seminar on the recipient’s work in progress. The prize will be offered in alternate years within the Michigan community, and nationally. This year we offered it internally: to a young scholar who has received their PhD as of the due date for applications (January 15, 2008), and no more than five years earlier, and who either earned that PhD at the University of Michigan, or is employed on the faculty or in a related capacity (e.g., publishing curator).
