The Department of Romance Languages and Literatures continues to thrive because of the generous contributions given to us. These contributions have allowed us to provide awards and prizes to outstanding undergraduate students.

Student Achievement Awards for Majors and Minors are presented to graduating majors and minors in Romance Languages and Literatures who have been nominated by our faculty and are considered exceptional in their studies.

The Agnes Nicolini Vincenti Award for an Outstanding Honors Thesis in Romance Languages and Literatures is a competitive monetary prize. Students who are in the honors program and have successfully completed their honors thesis can be nominated by their faculty advisor who considers their work exemplary.

The Chiara Maria Levin Award for Breadth and Excellence in the Romance Languages was created in memory of Chiara Levin, an RLL alumni who graduated with honors in 2006 and excelled in all four Romance languages taught here at UM. This award is meant to encourage exceptional students, like Chiara, to excel in more than one Romance language.
