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 essay should be no more than
2,000 words.

The student should state what experiential and/or academic background
she/he has had in anti-human trafficking and what she/he has learned from
this. A major part of the essay should be devoted to what  motivates the
writer to go into 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 5 pm Friday, March 13th. Essays should be submitted to Dr. Grothe or put in his box in the Student Affairs building. The judges  for the Rev. William Sloane Coffin Prize will be a panel of faculty experts.

Please share this opportunity with your students.
