George J. DeBenedetti Book Prize

The Mount Allison Faculty Association awards a book and cash prize of $250 to a Mount Allison student from any discipline who has a good academic record and who has demonstrated significant involvement in one or more the following areas:

  • social activism
  • advocacy work
  • student, university-wide, and/or broader community issues

Nominations are solicited every year from all academic staff and the decision is made by the MAFA Executive. The prize is normally awarded at the Annual General Meeting, held in April.

This prize recognizes George J. De Benedetti, Professor of Economics (1968–2000), for his many years of outstanding service to the Mount Allison Faculty Association, Mount Allison University, and Canadian university academic staff.
