Don and Alleen Nilsen Humor Scholarship Award Deadline

Thursday, Nov. 15, 5 p.m.
Submit to English Grad Coord (LL 543B) ASU
Tempe campus

Don and Alleen Nilsen, professors of English at Arizona State University and co-founders of the International Society for Humor Studies, established this award for the best student-made PowerPoint presentation to encourage the creation and spread of knowledge of humor and its influence on people's daily lives. The purpose of the award is more than simply make an audience laugh. The annual award competition is open to undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in an English degree program (see eligibility criteria at link below). Winning presentations may be posted on the Department of English website for viewing by the ASU community and humor scholars around the world.

Two awards of approximately $500 each will be given—one to an undergraduate student, and one to a graduate student.
