The Isabelle de Courtivron Prize was established by MIT’s Center for Bilingual / Bicultural Studies to reward high-quality undergraduate writing (creative or expository) and to honor distinguished Professor Emerita Isabelle de Courtivron. De Courtivron, a professor in MIT Foreign Languages and Literatures, was one of the founders of the CB/BS. The Prize was established on the occasion of her retirement in 2010 and is awarded on an annual basis.
