Applicants sought for annual undergraduate arts awards

You're good and you know it. Prove it!

Graduating undergraduate seniors are invited to apply for both of the university's annual undergraduate arts awards: the Louis Sudler Prize in the Arts ($1,500 cash award) and the President's Commendation for Achievement in the Arts.

Full guidelines, application forms, and submission details may be found here.

The deadline is 5 p.m., Friday, March 13.

The Louis Sudler Prize for outstanding artistic talent and achievement in the composition or performance of music, drama, dance, or the visual arts is awarded to a graduating senior from the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, Whiting School of Engineering, School of Nursing, or Peabody Institute, or a fourth-year student in the School of Medicine. The winner, whose submission cannot be related to his or her major field of study, receives a $1,500 cash award, and his or her name appears in the commencement program.

The President's Commendation for Achievement in the Arts is a service award honoring a graduating senior who has contributed extensively to the arts in the Homewood and/or Baltimore communities. Students in the schools of Arts and Sciences, Engineering, and Nursing, or the Peabody Institute, may apply for the commendation. All art forms are eligible for consideration. The winner receives a certificate, and his or her name appears in the commencement program.

A committee of faculty and administrators from the Homewood campus, the School of Nursing, the Peabody Institute, and the School of Medicine will review nominees and their supporting materials for both awards and make recommendations to President Daniels, who will make the final selections.
