The Talma Yzraely Prize PDF Print E-mail

The Fund was established to commemorate Talma Yzraely, a greatly loved and respected teacher in the English Department, who passed away in January 2003. Talma Yzraely was the founder of the composition program, responsible for instilling fresh life into it every year, and for personally looking into every detail. An inspired teacher, she passionately cared about every student and knew how to elicit the best work from everyone. For those of us who were lucky enough to know her, her name is associated with the highest standards of excellence. The prize in her name would be a great honor for any student.

The Talma Yzraely Prize is awarded each January to the undergraduate student with the highest grade point average who has completed at least two semesters of the BA program. The prize is designated to help pay tuition fees.
