Dell Undergraduate Award
Dell Magazines




Description
Limited Demographic: full-time undergraduate students at accredited colleges and universities

The Dell Magazines Award Award for Undergraduate Excellence in Science Fiction and Fantasy Writing is an award given annually to the best short-story written in the science fiction or fantasy genres by a full-time undergraduate college student.

In general, the winner of the Dell Magazines Award will be the story that best meets the expectations of the judges. Those stories typically are "character oriented"; i.e., the characters, rather than the science, provide the main focus for the reader's interest. Serious, thoughtful, yet accessible fiction will have the best chance of success.
