GRADUATE SCHOLARSHIP PRIZE

In conjunction with this year's annual conference, the Pacific 
Northwest Renaissance Society is pleased to announce the creation of 
the PNRS Award for Graduate Scholarship.

This award has been instituted to recognize excellence in scholarly

Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, 
Idaho, California, Nevada, Utah, and Wyoming).  Candidates must also 
submit a scholarly essay (5,000-20,000 words), which will be used as 
the basis for a presentation at the annual meeting of the Pacific 
Northwest Renaissance Conference and subsequently at the annual meeting 
of the Renaissance Society of America. The deadline for proposals for 
this year’s PNRS meeting is February 15, 2004; the full manuscript of 
any essay competing for the award must be submitted for evaluation by
