Student Awards

The Italian Studies Program awards several prizes to students who have demonstrated excellence in Italian.

Raimondi and Dante Prizes

The Raimondi and Dante prizes were established in 2010 by the generous donation of Bowdoin alumnus, Zach Messitte '90.

  • The Raimondi Prize honors the most outstanding senior in Italian studies.
  • The Dante Prize is awarded to the student who writes the best essay on Dante that year.
