Brown Book Awards

The Brown University Book Award is presented at a high school’s annual book awards presentation. It is awarded to a junior who exhibits excellent verbal and written communication skills. The award itself is a book selected by the University.

The program was started by the Brown Alumni Association in 1960, with 100 books being awarded at that time, and has grown through the generosity of Brown alumni. The goal of the Book Award program is two-fold: it combines the satisfaction of rewarding individual scholarship with promotion of Brown University’s name among high school and preparatory school students.

The Brown University Club of Southwest Florida participates in the Brown Book Award program. Listed below are the names and school affiliations of recent award recipients.
