May 21, 2009
Jeremy Borovitz (BA '09) was awarded the 2009 Hopwood Undergraduate Nonfiction Award, with a prize of $8,000. Borovitz won the prize for his work "Kosher Poland," which was based on a blog he wrote while studying abroad in Warsaw, Poland in the Winter of 2008. Borovitz and the other thirty-one University of Michigan Hopwood winners were honored at an awards ceremony in April.

The Hopwood Contest is administered by the Hopwood Program and was established based on terms set forth in the will of Avery Hopwood, a 1905 U-M graduate and prominent American dramatist. Each year, the Hopwood Program awards approximately $150,000 to students to encourage creative work in writing.
