Art History Term Paper Prizes

Excellence in research and writing is rewarded with small cash prizes to students who produce outstanding term papers or class projects. These special awards are made possible by the kind contributions of emerita faculty Jane Kristof and Lisa Andrus-Rivera.

Submit a research paper written for one of your art history courses at PSU that received an A. We also consider art history research projects that aren't traditional papers.

For this academic year, papers from art history courses taken in Spring 2020, Fall 2020, or Winter 2021 will be considered.


2021 Deadline TBA
