Kalman A. Burnim Prize for Scholarly Excellence,
|The Professor Kalman A. Burnim Prize for Scholarly Excellence is awarded annually to a Ph. D. student in drama who has completed all steps toward the degree except the dissertation and who has demonstrated distinction by excelling academically and in research and by contributing to the life of the program in an outstanding manner. The prize was established by alumni, colleagues, and friends in honor of Kalman A. Burnim, Emeritus Fletcher Professor of Drama and Oratory and Tufts alumnus (A1950), who created the Ph. D. program in drama. During his twenty-eight years at Tufts, Professor Burnim chaired the department for nine years and earned his reputation as a world-renowned scholar in theatre history.|
