Graduate Student Essay Awards
Deadline for Submission: March 2, 2012
Students enrolled in graduate degree programs in the English Department are eligible to submit a critical or scholarly essay written for a course at UNCG during Fall 2011. (Theses and dissertations are excluded.) You may submit only one essay, up to 30 pages (double-spaced). Two clean copies of the essay must be submitted to the Director of Graduate Studies. The cover sheet includes title of the essay, your name, the course/professor for which it was written. The title should also appear on the first page of the essay, but not your name, the course/professor for which it was written. Be sure your name does not appear in headers or footers on subsequent pages.
The Director of Graduate Studies oversees the process. Each essay undergoes a "blind submission" and is read by two professors acquainted with the subject. If there is a split decision a third reader evaluates the essay. The foremost essays will then be read by the faculty members of the Graduate Studies Committee. They will select the winner. The winner will be awarded $200.
