Jerome Irving Bank Short Story Prize

The Bank Short Story Prize was endowed by Lawrence H. Bank, Esq. '65 to honor and preserve the memory of his late brother, Jerome Irving Bank, Esq. Jerome Bank, a graduate of Hobart and of the New York University School of Law, always wanted to be a writer, but died before realizing this dream.

Each year, any F&M student can submit a work to be judged. The winner of the $1,000 Bank Prize is chosen by a visiting short story fiction writer. Larry Bank hopes the Bank Prize will encourage students to take a chance by following a dream, something that he, too, wishes he had tried a long time ago.
