Sven Eric Molin Award English

The Sven Eric Molin Prize honors Eric Molina professor of eighteenth-century studies, a devoted teacher of writing, and an authority on the writing and life of British novelist and essayist T. H. White. A discriminating and sympathetic judge of the writing of students as well as that of his colleagues in the English Department, Molin willed to the department funds to reward a student who produced an especially able essay on literature.  Now Generously sponsored by the same anonymous donor--a former George Mason English Department student--who also sponsors the Jackson, Karlson and Walls prizes, the award currently provides $1500 in funds toward the education of a continuing graduate student in English of exceptional merit.
