Undergraduate Awards

James J. Y. Liu Prize for Distinguished Undergraduate Work in East Asian Languages and Cultures

One prize is offered by the Asian Languages Department to an outstanding undergraduate who has written an outstanding essay for an EALC class on the literature or culture of China, Japan, and/or Korean in English and recommended by an instructor. The length of the essay is of secondary concern, but it should represent a substantial effort vis-à-vis the topic. 

Note: The undergraduate awards will be announced at the Diploma Ceremony for the Center of East Asian Studies and Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures. Award winners will be notified before the Ceremony.
