Louise Kerckhoff Prize



The Louise Kerckhoff Prize has been established for the purpose of awarding annual prizes for the best graduate and undergraduate papers in Gender Studies. Gift certificates to the USC Book Store in the amounts of $200 for graduate students and $100 for undergraduates will be awarded; up to two awards will be made in each category. Papers may have been written for classes in any school or department at the University of Southern California but should deal with subjects that are the focus of the USC Gender Studies Program: women's studies, men's studies, LGBTQ studies, or the theoretical study of gender. Papers may have been written for course work or as part of a thesis or dissertation.
