The Lumen Prize supports a two-year intellectual journey over the course of the junior and senior years. As with any journey, there are stages along the way -- each one with new discoveries and each with its unique blend of successes, frustrations, and new resolve. This page will help you keep up with the most recent stage in the journeys of our Lumen Scholars. Highlights from the most recent semester's activities and accomplishments are posted. In addition, some of the scholars have also created blogs, photo archives, video, and other means of documenting their journey. When available, you'll find links to those under each student's name and update.
We hope you'll enjoy keeping up with the Lumen Scholars as they continue along on some truly exciting and remarkable journeys!
