Please note that paper submissions must be primarily the work of the graduate student who is submitting the paper, and the submitter has the responsibility to obtain permission from co-authors prior to submission.  Also, all graduate students are reminded that the College of William & Mary's Honor Code prohibits them from submitting the same paper twice for award consideration.  However, work that is created as a result of the original submission or builds upon its theory, method, etc. may be re-submitted.  This usually means that the original work has had a period of at least a year for substantial alteration and development so that it reflects on-going scholarship.

Monetary awards will be presented at the Awards Luncheon at the Graduate Research Symposium to selected participants who submit a 5 - 6 page paper by the deadline.

Any questions regarding these awards should be addressed to the GRS Humanities chair Sarah Mattes.
