Kelly Leow’s essay, “‘Come l’uom s’etterna‘: Poetry, Pride and Textile in the Divine Comedy,” was recently selected as the winner of the 2013 Dante Prize for the best essay submitted by an undergraduate enrolled at a college or university in the United States or Canada.

The recognition comes on the heels of another recent award. Earlier this year, Kelly was awarded $500 for her work on Dante as recipient of first prize of the 2013 AATI College Essay Contest.

The UCLA Department of Italian extends congratulations to Kelly Leow and her mentor, Professor Andrea Moudarres, for this accomplishment.
