Dear Coalition Friends,
Some excellent nominations have already come in for two upcoming awards – the biennial Winifred Bryan Horner Outstanding Book Award and the biennial Nancy A. Myers Feminist Research Grant — and we are happy to accept even more! The Horner Book Award is one of the Coalition’s original three awards, while the Myers Feminist Research Grant is still young – only in its third award cycle – but both were created and named to honor Win’s and Nancy’s legacies of mentoring feminist scholars within and beyond the organization and the field.
Feel free to direct queries about either of these awards to firstname.lastname@example.org. For a list of past award winners, and to learn more about our awards in general, please visit https://cfshrc.org/awards.
With thanks and extreme well wishes for healthy, safety, and sanity
