The Inter-Faculty Committee on Latino Studies (IFCLAS) Annual Thesis Award was established in the Spring of 2003 by the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies (DRCLAS) to recognize the Harvard College senior who writes the best thesis on a subject concerning Latinos (either recent immigrants or established communities of Latin American descent in the United States ). Candidates may be nominated by their department, concentration or instructional committee, or candidates may nominate their own theses. The winner is determined in late May, and announced at the DRCLAS Certificate Ceremony held on the Wednesday before Commencement. This prize carries a monetary award of $500.
