Provost Amy Sands has announced the following:
“A $1,000 Rev. William Sloane Coffin cash prize will be awarded to the MIIS student who writes the best anti-human trafficking essay. $500 will be given to the writer of the second-best essay. The award is named after the late remarkable civil rights and peace activist Chaplain at Yale University and the money is donated by his close friend, Professor Peter Grothe. The award is given in memory of a victim of human trafficking in Cambodia, Sale Hillar, the daughter of MIIS Professor Bill Hillar who teaches a workshop on human trafficking. The essay should be no more than 2,000 words.
The student should state what experiential and/or academic background she/he has had in the anti-human trafficking field. Further, what are the most promising strategies for putting brakes on this affront to humanity?
The deadline for the essay is 5PM Friday, March 13th. Please submit your essay to Dr. Grothe or put it in his box in the Student Affairs Building. The judges for the Rev. William Sloane Coffin Prize will be a panel of faculty experts.
Thanks and good luck!”
