Grant of the Week: Cromwell Dissertation Prize
Every week, Perspectives Daily showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship of interest to historians which has been posted to our free Calendar. This week we are featuring the Cromwell Dissertation Prize.
Best dissertation in American legal history completed in the past year.
The William Nelson Cromwell Foundation Dissertation Prize is awarded annually to the best dissertation in any area of American legal history, including constitutional and comparative studies, although topics dealing with the colonial and early national periods will receive some preference.
The author of the winning dissertation receives $5,000. Anyone who received a PhD in 2018 will be eligible for this year’s prize, which is awarded after a review of the recommendation of the Cromwell Prize Advisory Committee of the American Society for Legal History.
To be considered for this year’s prize, please EITHER send a hard copy of the dissertation and author curriculum vitae to all committee members listed below OR simply e-mail an electronic copy of the dissertation and author curriculum vitae to John Gordan (firstname.lastname@example.org) and H. Robert Baker (email@example.com) with the subject heading: CROMWELL DISSERTATION PRIZE SUBMISSION no later than June 7, 2019.
End: June 7, 2019
