Student Awards

At the end of each academic year during the Department’s graduation ceremony, the Chinese Program presents awards to students for their outstanding achievements in Chinese studies.

The MLL Book Prize in Chinese is awarded to a student who has shown overall excellence in Chinese studies. This includes language abilities, research potentials and overall knowledge about China and Chinese culture.  

The Finn Prize for Excellence in Chinese was established through the generous support of the parents of our former student Michael Finn. It is given to a student who is considered by the Chinese faculty to have made the greatest progress in the study of the Chinese language.

The Chinese Culture Championship Prize is an award given by the Confucius Institute at W&M to recognize a student who has demonstrated leadership in promoting the knowledge and appreciation of Chinese culture on campus.
