Siegel/McDaniel Award for Graduate Student Research
July 27, 2012
The Philip Roth Society is still accepting submissions for its third annual Siegel/McDaniel Award for Graduate Student Research. The award recognizes high-quality work from graduate students written on any aspect of Philip Roth’s writing in the past year (ending June 1). The winner receives:
a $250 cash award;
a complimentary one-year membership (or renewal) in the Philip Roth Society, including a year’s subscription to Philip Roth Studies; and
an opportunity to work with the editor of Philip Roth Studies to publish an expanded version of the essay in the journal.
Eligible graduate students should submit a clean copy of a 10-15 page essay, double-spaced, with 12 point Times New Roman font to David Gooblar (gooblarprs [at] gmail.com) by September 1. The executive board members of the Philip Roth Society will evaluate all entries and notify entrants of their decision by October 1.
We ask that faculty members urge strong students to submit papers, and we welcome submissions from members and non-members alike. For more information on the Siegel/McDaniel Award, please click here.
