Description. The Eisner Prizes in Photo-Imaging are open to all UC Berkeley graduates and undergraduates of any major.
History of the Prize. In 1963, Samuel Marks established an endowment of $250,000 for the advancement of the arts on the Berkeley campus, in memory of his stepdaughter, Roselyn Schneider Eisner, an artist and sculptor. The Chancellor's Advisory Committee on the Arts recommended the money be used to establish prizes in each of the Creative Arts.
