The Shansi Prize is awarded annually, coinciding with the end of the academic year, and is ONLY for seniors. It is given to meritorious student scholarship on topics relating to Asia.

Prizes may vary, but will carry a maximum amount of $500. It is an award for completed work, and not a form of financial aid.

The project can take the form of written work, class project, research project, music composition or performance. To have a project entered for consideration it must be nominated by a member of the Oberlin College faculty or staff.

We encourage faculty and staff to nominate students whose work they believe to be appropriate for this prize. For details on how to nominate a student, please click here, or click on the link in the menu to the left of this text.
