The Louis Kampf Writing Prize

Please consider submitting your academic essays or creative writing (creative nonfiction, short stories, poetry, etc...) to the Louis Kampf Writing Prize in Women's and Gender Studies.

The $500 prize, sponsored by The Program in Women's and Gender Studies (WGS), was started in 1995–96 to honor Louis Kampf, distinguished professor emeritus of Literature and Women's Studies, and to reward high quality undergraduate writing in women's and gender studies. The Prize is judged by faculty from WGS. It also includes a luncheon with committee faculty and a guest of your choosing.

MIT students can submit entries in different genres of academic writing as well as fiction and poetry. Submissions should provide thoughtful reflection using gender as a central category of analysis.

All entries must be submitted in person to 14E-316 or emailed to by 5:00pm on Monday, April 8th, 2019.

Questions concerning the requirements for entries should be directed to (x3-8844) or
