Six students were awarded a total of $3,500 at the award ceremony for “Europe in the World: Perspectives of Community” competition Monday. The award ceremony was held on April 1 in the Amit Bhatia Libe Café and followed by a reception.
The competition, open to all undergraduate and graduate students, asked contestants to use various artistic mediums such as music and literature to address cultural or social expressions of identity, community and relationship in Europe, according to the contest’s guidelines.
The “Europe in the World” prizes were funded by a grant from the Cornell Institute for European Studies and the Cornell University Library, according to Kornelia Tancheva, the director of Olin and Uris Libraries. Tancheva added that “the competition was designed to stimulate student scholarship.”
