Alison Fraker Essay Prize

Alison G. Fraker '89 Essay Prize


Established in 1990 by Drue Cortell Gensler '57, Middlebury College trustee, this award honors the memory of Alison Gwen Fraker '89 (shown in a dance performance, at right), a much-beloved, vocally feminist student who was killed in a car accident a few weeks short of her graduation. The prize is awarded to a student whose essay on a topic specifically concerning women and gender studies is judged the best. It excludes senior theses.
