2024 Awards Cycle

Our next awards cycle will open in spring 2024 and remain open for roughly 6 weeks. Once committees have been finalized, instructions for submissions will be released. Article and dissertation award entries will be submitted via email. Book award entries will require mailed hard copies to each committee member. Winners are announced the following summer. Please check back for updates.
