The Language Centre and the Faculty of Arts of the University of Groningen have established the Gerrit Krol Award in 2019 in order to pay structural attention to Dutch as an academic language. The second edition has the theme 'scenarios for the future'.

Gerrit Krol Award

Students from all universities in Dutch-speaking regions are invited to submit their essays of up to 2,000 words in Dutch until 1 June 2021.

The jury consists of Louis Stiller (writer), Zito Ysenbaert (winner Gerrit Krol Award 2019), Ellen Krol (Gerrit Krol’s daughter) and Ronald Ohlsen (writer and teacher at the Language Centre). The criteria are originality, stylistic ingenuity, and a talent for entertainment. The award comprises a monetary prize of € 2,000 and publication of the essay on literary weblog Tzum.
