The Mari Sandoz Heritage Society encourages research on Mari Sandoz and her work by offering an annual research award of $1,000 for proposals that emphasize new insights on Sandoz or new approaches to her life and work. Topics to consider include: feminism; American Indian topics; environmental issues; activism. The award recipient will present the research at the Mari Sandoz Symposium at Chadron State College in Chadron, Nebraska, held annually during the fall. One award of $1,000 will be disbursed in two payments: An initial payment of $500 will be presented with award notification to the recipient and an announcement. The balance of $500 will be paid the following year when the research is completed and presented at the symposium.

Applications are accepted from August 1 of the current year to July 31 of the following year. The deadline for applications is by midnight on July 31. Applicants will be contacted by September 1 regarding the status of their applications. Award winners will be announced publicly at the Fall Sandoz Symposium.
