Department of English at Illinois State University

Make a Gift to the English Department

The William Morgan Poetry Award

This endowment was established in 2003 by Professor Emeritus William Morgan, a long-time member of the department.

The award is normally given annually to an undergraduate English major who demonstrates excellence in both the writing of original poetry and in the scholarly and critical study of poetry. The award is also normally given annually to a master's or Ph.D. candidate in English who demonstrates excellence in both the writing of original poetry and in the scholarly and critical study of poetry (including poetry pedagogy).

If, in a given year, there is no clearly deserving application at either the undergraduate or graduate level, no award will be given.

Assets of this endowment are invested in the ISU Endowment Investment Pool.
