                       Jonas C. Greenfield Prize
                         for Younger Semitists

        The American Oriental Society is pleased to announce the
        establishment of a new prize to honor the memory of the 
        eminent Semitist and long-term AOS member, Jonas C. Greenfield.
        The Greenfield Prize carries a cash award of $1000 and will
        be granted biannually to a younger scholar for the best
        published article in any area of Semitic studies that has appeared
        during the 2 year interval between awards.  According to the
        stipulation of the donor, the scholar must be under the age of
        40 at the time of submission of an article to the AOS for
        consideration in the competition.

        The selection of the award winning article will be made by
        an AOS committee and the first award will be announced in 
        October 1998.  Presentation of the award will take place at
        the spring meeting of the AOS following the announcement.

        Scholars are invited to submit three copies of the submitted 
        article and three copies of a Curriculum Vitae to the American
        Oriental Society, Harlan Hatcher Library, University of Michigan, 
        Ann Arbor MI 48109-1205.  Please clearly mark the envelope 
        "Greenfield Prize."  Deadline for submission for the first award
        is May 15, 1998.  Further information may be obtained by sending
        e-mail to the AOS Office in Ann Arbor (jrodgers@umich.edu).
