Introduce talented young people to the opportunities available at Harvard, and recognize their scholastic and personal achievements through the Harvard Book Prize program. Prize Books are presented annually in more than 1,000 high schools around the world to outstanding students in the next-to-graduating class who demonstrate excellence in scholarship and achievement in other nonacademic areas. The award is often given at the school’s graduation exercises, sometimes with appropriate remarks by local alum. The Book Prize may also be awarded to outstanding high school teachers who inspire curiosity and excellence in their students.


To establish a Book Prize award, a Harvard Club/SIG or Club/SIG member need only contribute the cost of one book. Participating Clubs and SIGs should contact the local high school principal and guidance counselor to introduce the program and to arrange for a student to be selected by the high school to receive the award.
