3rd or 4th year undergraduate students interested in pursing work in any aspect of Carribean study/research.
During his final visit to the University of Toronto, Nobel Prize winner and celebrated poet Derek Walcott called on Caribbean peoples to read Indian, and other cross-cultural works being produced in the islands. D. Walcott discussed, among other things, the multicultural contributions that result in the Caribbean's rich and textured body of literature. Indeed, D. Walcott himself, both in ancestry and craft represents the cosmopolitan, inherently hybridized nature of the Caribbean.
With that in mind, the Derek Walcott Undergraduate Award was created. The Derek Walcott Award promotes this multicultural understanding of the Caribbean, and calls for contributions from the “fresh green voices” that Walcott calls for in his poem “Names.”
