Shanker Memorial Prizes
These prizes have been established by Dr. Prem Shanker in memory of his parents, Dr. Vishnu and Vachan Shanker. Awarded to two students, one from any University course and another from the Collegiate, who have written the best essays promoting dialogue, understanding and mutual acceptance between two or more religious traditions. Preference will be given to essays which consider both Eastern and Western religious traditions, or which promote the idea of non-violent ways of bringing about social change.
