THE UNDERGRADUATE ARTIST OF THE YEAR AWARD is a monetary citation presented annually to an undergraduate in arts and culture-related programs, who has demonstrated exceptional promise in their field. The CCA selects from within the university an outstanding undergraduate student who has demonstrated talent, dedication, and who has realized notable achievements in one or more artistic disciplines while at Cornell.
Undergraduate students in their 3rd, 4th, or 5th year majoring in one or more arts-related disciplines are eligible for nomination by a CCA-affiliated department/unit. Nominated artists shall have agreed in advance to a public presentation, lecture, exhibition, or performance of their work. All nominated students must possess a demonstrated record of achievments and artistic excellence in their discipline of work. Innovation and experimentation - as components of excellence, artistic rigor, the influential nature of the artist's work, and their commitment to engaging diverse audiences - are all considered in the nomination and selection of the award recipients.
