Writing Awards

SAGES First and University Seminar instructors may nominate up to two students from each seminar for the FSEM or USEM Essay Prize. Nomination forms are sent to all faculty teaching an FSEM or USEM on the first reading day of each semester. Nominations are due by the day final grades are due. Nominees will be asked to submit a final, blinded copy of their essays for consideration.

Student writers are recognized at the Celebration of Student Writing & Research and at the Writing Program Awards Ceremony. Winning essays that meet publication requirements are shared online on the Writing Program website (FSEM Essay Prize and USEM Essay Prize).
