Research & Creative Work Award
The Center for Women at St. Catherine University presents the annual Awards for Research and Creative Work.
Five separate awards of $600 and a certificate are available to:
- undergraduate students enrolled during all or part of the academic year in a St. Catherine University program on either campus;
- graduate students enrolled during all or part of the academic year in a St. Catherine University program on either campus;
- faculty or staff members currently employed by the University;
- alumnae/i; and
- collaborative across award categories.
An awards committee of St. Catherine faculty members judges submissions in each of the categories separately. In their deliberations, the judges may use consultants.
Guidelines for Submission
- Research and creative work should have a focus on women, or issue(s) relevant to women’s status or concerns.
- Work must have been created, revised, or completed within three years before the competition deadline. For all categories except alumnae/i, the work must have been completed while the author was enrolled at/employed by St. Catherine University.
