The Prindle Institute for Ethics formally invites all DePauw students to submit coursework relating to ethics or of ethical concern. The Prindle Prize Program is an annual competition, which gives students the opportunity to win monetary prizes for their involvement with Prindle and dedication to including ethics in their academics. Submission categories for coursework from the current semester include Humanities, Natural Science Research, Social Science Research, Visual Performing and Literary Art, and Technology. 15 Prizes of $300 each will be awarded (3 per category).

Students can submit only works completed for the current semester’s courses. Students who submitted in the Fall are eligible to submit work for the Spring deadline.  Winners will be recognized at the 2015 Prindle Prize Reception on Saturday, May 9, 2015.

You can find the Prindle Prize Coursework submission form and guidelines here.  The Spring semester deadline is Monday, April 27th.

*Please Note: Submissions that are not primarily focused on ethical issues should include an abstract/addendum to explain why the submission is related to ethics.
