Student Awards: Jon Sultan Writing Award

The Jon Sultan Writing Award was established by Jon's parents in loving memory of their son who was an integral part of the first Integrative Studies cohort in 1995. Among his many wonderful qualities, Jon was a gifted writer who was planning a career in teaching writing. This award is presented annually to recognize achievement and encourage the development of outstanding writing talent among School of Integrative Studies students.

Students are nominated by faculty based on their writing. The School of Integrative Studies is grateful to Jon Sultan's parents who established this generous award.
