C.P. Snow was a British philosopher, physicist, biographer, novelist, and social critic who believed that the lack of communication between mainstream scientists, social scientists, and humanists was the greatest obstacle to social progress. Each year, the IC School of Humanities and Sciences sponsors a lecture and a student award that honor this principle.

This year's student award winners, who will receive their awards before the talk, are Eleanor Lahr and Seamus Levine-Wilkinson.
