The Sophie and William Bramson Prize

The Sophie and William Prize, established in 1981 is a cash stipend awarded annually to an outstanding graduating senior majoring in sociology and anthropology. The prize recognizes the excellence of the senior thesis, in either course or honors, as well as the excellence of the student’s entire career in the department.

Leon Bramson endowed the fund in honor of his parents, Sophie and William. He was the founding chairman of the Sociology and Anthropology Department.
