Every year the Kunitz Award honors the best undergraduate work in the field of Jewish Studies. This award was made possible by donations from the family, friends and community of Don Kunitz, a librarian at UC Davis.
2018 winners in the research paper category are Josie Kamida, Ethan Kogon-Schneider, and Oswaldo Vargas. Prizes in the short paper category were awarded to Noah Scheindlin and Maddie Thomas. Finally, Bardia Eshghi and Danielle Schwartz received honorable mentions!
