Three Princeton undergraduates have been awarded the annual A. Scott Berg '71 Scholarship by the Department of English .
The prize includes a $3,500 stipend designed to help meet the living, travel or research expenses of undergraduate English majors who plan to use the summer for writing or research in connection with their Princeton courses or independent work.
The winners are: sophomore Patrick Cunningham, who will use the prize to research a novel he is writing, "The Relic Thief"; junior Caroline Murphree, who plans to spend part of the summer studying Jane Austen's juvenilia notebooks housed in the British Library in London and the Bodleian Library in Oxford; and junior Andrew Romano, who will spend the summer in Los Angeles, researching his senior thesis on the city "as a literary idea, an imaginative construction, a landscape of symbols."
Berg, who established the scholarship in 2001, is a member of Princeton's class of 1971 and won the Pulitzer Prize in 1999 for his best-selling biography of Charles Lindbergh.
