This prize was established in 2007 by Nancy Hall Rutgers and her husband Nicholas Rutgers Jr. to honor Nancy's father, James Norman Hall '10, the author of Mutiny on the Bounty. The prize consists of a cash award of $2,000, which must be used to cover the expenses of writing projects and/or attendance at a writing conference or workshop during the summer following the awarding of the prize. The winner is determined through an annual competition, judged every spring semester.
Deadline: Wednesday, April 3, 2013, 4:00 p.m.
The Ralph Luebben Prize in Anthropology is awarded to the graduating senior who best exemplifies the ideal Anthropology student including meritorious scholarly work, breadth in the discipline, field experience, and an anthropological viewpoint on life.
Congratulations to all of this year’s winners of national scholarships, fellowships and grants! Grinnellians secured three Watson fellowships, a Davis Project for Peace award, two Barry Goldwater scholarships, and seven Fulbright grants, for a total of 13 awards. These winners continue the long-standing tradition of Grinnell students securing prestigious awards to support their studies.
Two Grinnell students recently won awards for research presentations at the Iowa Physiological Society (IPS) annual meeting in Des Moines. IPS provides networking opportunities for physiologists in applied research and teaching.
“The IPS experience gives the students an opportunity to interact with undergraduate peers in a local setting before potential attendance and presentation on a broader level,” said Clark Lindgren, professor of biology who encouraged the biology students to attend.
