Dean's Prize for Student Scholarship on Women

Have you written a paper you are particularly proud of? Is there a student in your class whose work has really impressed you? Submit your work for the Dean's Prize!

In the spring semester each year, the Dean of Arts and Sciences will award two prizes of $100 each to current William and Mary students whose work (completed within the last three semesters) is evaluated by a selection committee as most successful in advancing our knowledge of women.  One prize will go to an undergraduate and the other to a graduate student. This competition is open to all undergraduate and graduate arts and science students. Past winners include Katelyn Durkin, Teresa Ingraham, Laurel Daen, Casey Metheny, Margaret Freeman and Morgan Berman.
