Opportunity for Harvard Students: The Philip Hofer Prize for Collecting Books or Art

November 17, 2020

Harvard undergraduate and graduate students in any discipline: if you collect books or art, consider applying for the 2020–2021 Philip Hofer Prize. This long-running prize is awarded annually to a student whose collection of books or works of art best exemplifies the traditions of breadth, coherence, and imagination represented by Philip Hofer, A.B. ‘21, L.H.D. ‘67, founder and first Curator of the Department of Printing & Graphic Arts in Houghton Library and Secretary of the Fogg Art Museum.

The first prize winner will receive $3,000 and their essay will be published in Harvard Library Bulletin. Second and third prize winners will receive awards of $1,500 and $750, respectively.

The deadline for submissions is Monday, February 15, 2021.
