The Emilia Ferrara Thesis Award

The Emilia Ferrara Thesis Award recognizes the two students whose theses the English Honors Committee deems most outstanding. Honorees receive their medals and a check at the Department of English Commencement Reception in the spring, and a notation for each recipient appears in the College's Tropaia Program.
