Dr. E.A. “Tony” Mares Award for Chicano Literature Endowment

The Dr. E.A. “Tony” Mares Award for Chicano Literature Endowment is an annual award through the English Department, which supports Chicano literature, poetry, history, and general writings about Chicanos. This award benefits both undergraduate and graduate students.

Dr. Mares was a noted New Mexico poet, author, playwright, and gifted teacher who retired from the University of New Mexico in the late 1990s, where he served as a Professor of English. Thank you for making a gift today to honor Dr. Mares’ memory.
