Jerome Prize for Hebrew 2022

The prize is awarded annually to the top student in Hebrew for both the Chinese–and English Department respectively, and also for the most-improved student in the subject.

John Brown Award for Greek 2022

The prize is awarded annually to the top student in Greek for both the Chinese–and English Department respectively, and also for the most-improved student in the subject. The name recalls the shepherd boy who learned Greek on his own, while shepherding sheep. He became a professor of divinity later in life.
