Isabelle de Courtivron Prize


About the prize

The Isabelle de Courtivron Writing Prize is awarded annually to recognize high-quality undergraduate writing (creative or expository) on topics related to immigrant, diaspora, bicultural, bilingual, and/or mixed-race experiences. The prize was established to honor distinguished Professor Emerita Isabelle de Courtivron on the occasion of her retirement in 2010.

The Isabelle de Courtivron Prize is open to all MIT undergraduate students and is awarded on an annual basis. Entries are judged by a panel of faculty, lecturers, and/or professional writers. The awards are: First Prize, $400; and Second Prize, $100. A select number of honorable mentions may also be awarded, but do not carry a cash prize. Prize winning submissions will be featured on the Global Languages website.

The submission deadline for 2021 is Wednesday, March 3 (by 11:59pm).
