CCWH Invites Applications for Prelinger Award

AHA Staff, March 2003

The Coordinating Council for Women in History invites applications for the 2003 CCWH-Prelinger Award, a $10,000 prize given to a scholar who has not followed a traditional uninterrupted academic path leading to a tenured faculty position, but who has nevertheless contributed significantly to women in history. Applications must be received by April 4, 2003. Applicants must be members of the CCWH, have a PhD (or ABD status), and must show evidence of a nontraditional professional career. Guidelines and application forms may be obtained from Marguerite Renner, Department of History, Glendale College, 1500 Verdugo Road, Glendale. CA 91208. Membership information is available on the CCWH web site at http://theccwh.org.

The CCWH awarded the 2002 Prelinger scholarship to Lisa Di Caprio, who is currently teaching at the City College (of the City University of New York) Center for Worker Education. Di Caprio, who received her PhD from Rutgers University in 1996 for her work that explored women's relationship to the origins of modern welfare in France, is at present investigating the role of women in the transformation of international justice through their participation in international tribunals.
