Anne E. Borghesani Memorial Prize

The Anne E. Borghesani Memorial Prize is an incentive award that enables the recipient(s) to undertake a research project, an internship, a volunteer activity, or a plan of study in any field involving international issues. Designed to foster the spirit of the award, the prize encourages personal growth and independence, while increasing one's understanding of all peoples and encouraging a commitment to the world community.

Second-semester sophomores and juniors from ANY department or major with a minimal GPA of 2.8 or above are eligible for the prize. Preference is given to U.S. citizens, but students of any nationality are urged to apply. Ultimately, the quality of proposal will determine prize selection.

Over the past decade, students from a variety of Tufts majors have used the prize to venture abroad and study, conduct research, participate in international internships, and become involved in social change movements. Borghesani award recipients have carried out their plans in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, and South Asia.
