The Don Kunitz Award for Academic Excellence in Jewish Studies
The Kunitz Award honors the best undergraduate work each year for categories such as short essays, research papers, creative projects and senior theses. The monetary prize for the award varies from $100 to $300 depending on the category. This award was made possible by donations from the family, friends and community of Don Kunitz, a librarian at UC Davis. He continued his varied intellectual interests even after he retired, attending many lectures and colloquia on campus. Don was a warm person with a wonderful sense of humor. He was very much a cultural and secular Jew. This award keeps his memory alive for those of us who knew him and, at the same time, perpetuates his spirit in a manner he would find extremely worthwhile.
