Peter Hays Prize Writing in First-Year Seminar Program

Inspired by Professor Hays's abiding interest in undergraduate student writing and his continued teaching in the University of California, Davis First-Year Seminar Program, this fund will support an annual award for the best entry written in a First-Year Seminar. The prize is made possible by a generous gift from the Hays family. It will be administered by the Department of English.
