ANNOUNCEMENT OF PRIZE FOR OUTSTANDING PAPER IN SEPTUAGINT STUDIES
The International Organization for Septuagint and Cognate Studies is offering an
annual prize of $250 to be awarded for an outstanding paper in the field of
Septuagint Studies. This field is construed broadly, and a paper may focus on
any aspect of the study of the Greek translations of the Jewish Scriptures. The
IOSCS wants to encourage the study of these translations by younger scholars,
and eligibility is thus limited to advanced graduate students or recent Ph.D.
recipients (3 years or less after receiving the degree). The papers will be
judged by a committee constituted of IOSCS members, and papers receiving prizes
will be published in an appropriate form in the following Bulletin of the IOSCS.
The committee reserves the right not to award the prize in any given year. The
deadline for submission is August 31, 1998 and should be sent to Benjamin G.
Wright, Department of Religion Studies, Maginnes Hall, 9 W. Packer Ave., Lehigh
University, Bethlehem, PA 18015.
