Academic Programs

The Stone Center holds an awards ceremony each Spring to honor excellence in academia among its graduate students and among Latin Americanist scholarship. The following awards are presented on an annual basis:

  • The Stone Center Award for Best Campus-Wide Graduate Paper on a Latin American Topic
  • The Richard E. Greenleaf Award for the best social science paper written by a student in the Latin American Studies interdisciplinary graduate program.
  • The Donald Robertson Award for the best paper in the humanities by a student in the Latin American Studies interdisciplinary graduate program.
  • The William J. Griffith Award for Outstanding Teaching Assistant in Latin American Studies
  • LAGO Outstanding Graduate Student Service Award

Prize guidelines for best paper awards include:

  • Only graduate students in the Latin American Studies MA or Ph.D. programs qualify for the Richard E. Greenleaf and Donald Robertson Awards.
  • Any papers written as part of a semester course requirement on a Latin American topic during the calendar year (Jan-Dec) qualify for competition.
  • The deadline for submission of qualifying papers to the Center for Latin American Studies is mid-late March of the award year. Qualifying papers must be nominated by a sponsoring faculty member. A sponsoring faculty member must write a letter of support for the paper explaining its value to scholarship within the field of study. Students are encouraged to discuss their work with faculty and its appropriateness for these prizes. Students unable to secure a nominating letter should contact the awards committee via the Stone Center’s Graduate Advisor.
  • The nomination letter from the sponsoring faculty member must accompany the paper at the time of submission.
