There are a variety of prizes, awards and fellowships available in the Fall and Winter terms.
There are three Hopwood Contests — that is, contests that hold the "Hopwood" name — held throughout the year:
- The Hopwood Award Theodore Roethke Prize (open to all students)
- Hopwood First- and Second-Year Contest (open to first- and second-year students)
- Graduate and Undergraduate Hopwood Contest (open to all students)
The first two on this list (Roethke and First- and Second- Year) have deadlines late in the fall term; the Graduate and Undergraduate Hopwood Contest has a deadline early in the winter term.
