Morrill Prize for Graduate Scholarship in History

 

 

The Morrill Prize (named for Justin Smith Morrill, founder of the American land-grant university) is an annual award of at least $500 presented to the graduate student in History at North Dakota State University who best represents the modern ideals of the land-grant university.  These ideals, which serve as basic criteria for making the award, include

 

1.      Research scholarship as expressed in journal articles, paper presentations, and other scholarly writings or products

 

2.      Scholarly service to the public and to the profession

 

The two criteria are here listed in order of priority.  The first is to be given greater weight, but the second also must be manifest.

 

The Morrill Prize is awarded on the basis of judgment by an external referee, a distinguished scholar of History who represents the very ideals to be adjudged in candidates for the prize and who serves at a peer land-grant institution.

 

Details and stipulations for the award are summarized in the table below.
