The Cécile E. Mactaggart Travel Award for Narrative Writing
$12,000 Travel Prize
In 1999 the Faculty of Arts established the Mactaggart Writing Award with a gift from local philanthropist Dr. Cécile E. Mactaggart. The award is intended to showcase excellent writing in the Faculty of Arts and to highlight the importance of travel for life long education. The award will provide up to $12,000 to support a new and stimulating travel experience for the winner. It is not intended to fund research travel.
The competition alternates annually between undergraduate students and teaching staff members in the Faculty of Arts. The Fall 2012 competition will be a student competition.
