There is no other implicit or explicit relationship between The Chautauqua Prize and other Chautauqua Institution literary programs.

  1. The Chautauqua Prize is separate from the other literary offerings of Chautauqua Institution. Authors and lecturers who have appeared previously at Chautauqua are eligible for The Chautauqua Prize.
  2. The book that wins The Chautauqua Prize, while not officially designated as a selection of the Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle, will count as a book that can be read for CLSC graduation and Guild of Seven Seals reading designations, which ensures continued readership into the future by thousands of active readers in this program.
  3. Books chosen as CLSC selections may be considered for The Chautauqua Prize, and Chautauqua Prize winners may be considered for CLSC selection, as long as all conditions for eligibility for selection in both programs are met.
  4. The obligation of the author who wins The Chautauqua Prize is an appearance and acceptance speech for the prize, with an optional public reading and book signing. If the winning author is asked for an Amphitheater, master class, or CLSC lecture, that appearance will be requested and compensated separately.
