The Hammond Prize is awarded by the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies (DRCLAS) for the best Harvard undergraduate senior honors thesis related to Spanish-speaking Latin America . It was established in 1992 by a gift from James R. Hammond '57. Each department may nominate one candidate, and a faculty committee selects the prize recipient. 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.
