Candace Carlucci Backus '66 FYE Prize in Honor of Student Academic Achievement in
the First-Year Experience
The First-Year Experience Prize, supported with the generosity of Candace Carlucci Backus ’66, will be awarded annually to up to three projects by first-year students in recognition of exceptional scholarly or artistic achievement in the fall’s Scribner Seminars.
During the spring semester, the First-Year Experience Office will solicit nominations from the previous fall’s Scribner Seminar instructors. Nominations may be either for individual or collaborative projects, and may include any kind of exemplary work – written, visual, or performative.

- Project title: "Running: Discovering the Truth"
- Seminar: Rik Scarce, “Endurance: Long Distance Running through the Majors"
- Project title: "Alone: An Alternative Soundtrack to See You Yesterday"
