The Department of Religious Studies invites submissions for the Holstein Graduate Prize in Religion and Social Justice. This annual prize awards a certificate of recognition and $250 to the author of the best paper or dissertation chapter written by a graduate student at UCR in the previous year on a topic related to religion and social justice. Although graduate students in religious studies will receive primary consideration for this award, applications from outside the department will also be considered.

Papers may be published or unpublished, and should be no longer than 25,000 words. There is no minimum length. Applicants may submit up to two papers or chapters each year. Submissions will be reviewed by a committee. To submit a paper, please send it as an email attachment in Word or PDF format to melissa.wilcox@ucr.edu by May 1, 2018.

The Holstein Graduate Prize is funded by the Holstein Family and Community Chair in Religious Studies at UCR, which was created through the generosity of Robert and Loretta Holstein and their family and friends.
