Harriet Beecher Stowe Up and Coming Scholar Award


The Stowe Society would like to recognize graduate students who are currently working on scholarship on Harriet Beecher Stowe.  We are sponsoring an outstanding paper award of $100 that will help contribute to conference travel and that will guarantee a slot on our Stowe panel at ALA.  To submit a paper for the award, please send an essay of no more than eight pages to ldamico@uiwtx.edu by December 15, 2019.  Papers should not have your name or any identifying information on them, as they will be anonymously reviewed by Stowe Society members.  We will announce the awards in January on our website as well as via email.  We look forward to reading your submissions!
