The Carol Gold Graduate Student Conference Paper Prize is an annual $150 prize that recognizes the outstanding paper presented by a graduate student at the annual WAWH conference. The committee will judge the presented paper, normally 10-12 pages. The presenter must also still submit a copy to the commentator of their panel. All fields of history will be considered, and articles must be submitted with full scholarly apparatus.
To apply for a WAWH prize, use this online submission form. Deadline: March 30, 2020.
For questions about the Carol Gold Graduate Student Conference Paper Prize, please contact the Current Chair.
