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, internship, volunteer activity, or 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.

Since 1991, 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 worldwide.

Second-semester sophomores and juniors from ALL departments or majors with a GPA of 2.8 or above are eligible to apply, providing the proposal has a strong international component. The selection committee may make one or several awards, depending on the quantity and quality of submissions in a given year. Thus, applicants should be aware that the award might not cover the full cost of proposed activities. Awards generally range between $1000-$3000.
