Fanny Delisle Award
Named for Dr. Fanny Delisle, who in 1972 earned the first English Ph.D. at UNH, this award is given annually for the best graduate essay in literary studies. In 2002, the UNH English Department established this award to honor Dr. Delisle and to celebrate the 30th anniversary of its doctoral program. Any currently enrolled graduate student may compete, with the exception of previous winners of the award; the recipient is chosen by a committee of literature faculty and receives a modest financial award. The Delisle Award is supported in part by the Edmund G. Miller Fund for the Department of English.
