The Patricia Lindell Prize for Research Papers is open for submissions. Awarded every other year, the prize of $400 is funded by our stellar friends group, the Gustavus Library Associates Papers written during the 2006/07 and 2007/08 academic years will be accepted for the current competition. By “research paper,” we mean a paper written on any topic for any Gustavus course that clearly demonstrates the use of primary or secondary print and/or electronic resources. A panel of faculty will select the winning paper in the Fall of 2008, with announcement of the winner to be made at the annual St. Lucia luncheon next December.
The competition is open to Gustavus students from all disciplines who have written for a Gustavus course. Members of the faculty are asked to encourage their students to enter their work. Application forms are available at the Library Circulation Desk.
Previous prize winners include Adrienne Donath for "Silence in the Cloister: A Study of the Future of the Sisterhood in the American Church" and Daniel Pioske for American Protestantism and its Impact Upon the Desire of its Members to Seek Congressional Office."
