Sponsor a Prize Book

Introduce talented young people to the opportunities available at Harvard, and recognize their scholastic and personal achievements through the Harvard Prize Book program.  Prize Books are presented annually in more than 1,900 high schools around the world to outstanding students in the next-to-graduating class who demonstrate excellence in scholarship and achievement in other nonacademic areas. The award is often given at the school’s graduating exercises, with appropriate remarks by a local alumnus/a. The Prize Book may also be awarded to outstanding high school teachers who inspire curiosity and excellence in their students.

To establish a Prize Book award, a Harvard Club/SIG or Club/SIG member need only contribute the cost of one book. Participating Clubs and SIGs should contact the local high school principal and guidance counselor to introduce the program and to select the student to receive the award. Most Clubs and SIGs choose from titles offered by the HAA, although Clubs and SIGs may choose books not on this list.
