The Wesleyan University Hamilton Prize
Wesleyan is proud to announce The Wesleyan University Hamilton Prize for Creativity, a four-year full-tuition scholarship established in honor of Hamilton writer and star Lin-Manuel Miranda ’02 and director Thomas Kail ’99.
The story of our country’s youngest founding father—a brash young immigrant who forever changed the course of history—Hamilton is an extraordinary artistic achievement: a multicultural hip-hop opera that offers a profoundly original look at the birth of our nation.
The Wesleyan University Hamilton Prize for Creativity will be awarded to the incoming student of Wesleyan’s Class of 2021 whose work of fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction or other creative written expression (lyrics, plays, scripts, etc.) best reflects the originality, artistry and dynamism embodied in Hamilton.
