Borgenicht Prize

Every fall, the Reiff Center hosts a lecture on the topic of the Israeli-Palestine conflict and offers the $1,000 Borgenicht Fellowship Prize for the best essay written in response to the lecture. The essay must reflect an important aspect of Israeli-Palestinian relations as discussed in the lecture, and must not exceed 2,500 words.

The 2018 prize was awarded to Emma Croushore for her essay, “Shared Female Religious Figures in Islam and Judaism: A Potential Source of Unity in the Gendered Israel-Palestine Conflict.”
