Awards and Recognition

The President's Award

Emerson College 2004

The award is given to the graduating student who has the highest level of academic achievement among his or her peers in graduate programs at Emerson.

The Rod Parker Playwriting Award

Winner 2004

The Rod Parker Playwriting Award and NewFest are both funded by the generous support of Rod Parker ’51. Mr. Parker wrote his first play while an undergraduate at Emerson College, and in 1991 made the Playwrights' Festival possible by creating an endowment to fund fellowships for student playwrights and support the first productions of their work. Emerson College is very fortunate that alumnus Rod Parker has seen the importance of supporting new playwrights as a way of keeping the theater vibrant.
