The yearly competition for The Leonard Boyle Dissertation Prize for Medieval Studies is currently open. This prize is awarded to a deserving dissertation in any field of medieval studies. The dissertation must be written by a Canadian or by someone resident in Canada. Entries are adjudicated by the Dissertation Prize Committee, a subcommittee of the Canadian Society of Medievalists (CSM). The prize consists of a cash award as well as a membership in the CSM for three years. Members automatically receive copies of the journal Florilegium and the CSM's newsletter Scrinium.

Normally, the dissertation must be submitted within one year of a successful defense. One paper copy of the dissertation, one electronic copy, a letter or report from the supervisor, and an external report should be sent to the Chair of the Committee by FEB 25, 2016, for consideration in the competition. Canadians who completed their dissertations at foreign institutions must also provide proof of citizenship.

This is the contact information for this year's Chair of the Committee:
