The L. Bolton Ethics Award
Supported by the National Society of Collegiate Scholars, the Bolton Prize honors ethical integrity in undergraduate achievement in the arts of poetry, essay, nonfiction, public service, and the visual arts. The winning essay must illuminate, in some critical dimension, the importance of ethics in academic discourse and scholarships. Submissions may consider: one’s ethical obligation towards the Other (with whom we inhabit the world); the other as Alter-Species (with whom we inhabit the planet); and the other as Land. 15 pages maximum. This prize is offered in the spring of even-numbered years.
