Through the support of a generous donor, the Department of Philosophy is pleased to offer the Lafayette Award, named in honor of a beloved residence that hosted many lively philosophy discussions. This award recognizes an undergraduate student whose work bridges the theoretical components of philosophy with the practical. First generation college students who are juniors or seniors may apply for the award. Nominees and self-nominees are welcome. Please use the online form to nominate a student. All nominees will be invited submit a brief statement (500 words or less) about how Philosophy is active in their lives (bridging the theoretical and the practical). The award consists of a plaque and a monetary prize of $500. Up to two awards are given each year.
