The G. Margaret Porter Gender Studies Graduate Writing Prize ($150) is awarded to the best essay by a Gender Studies Graduate Minor student written in the calendar year (January to December). This prize is named in honor of G. Margaret Porter, Gender Studies Librarian at the Hesburgh Library who enabled high-caliber research in gender by ensuring that students and faculty have access to the best resources in Gender Studies. Submissions can be essays written for a class, or papers presented at conferences. Dissertation chapters and sections of MA theses are not eligible. Only graduate students enrolled in the Gender Studies Minor may apply.
Submission for the Graduate Writing Prize should be sent electronically to: firstname.lastname@example.org on or by NOON on the second Friday in April. If Friday is a holiday, then submissions will be due on Thursday.
