The Professor Frank Pearce Essay Prize ($1,500) was established in September 2016 by the Steve and Sally Stavro Family Foundation, in honour of Professor Emeritus Dr. Frank Pearce. The prize will be awarded to one Master's or PhD level student who submits the best essay (5,000 words) on the topic of radical critical theory and social justice.
The prize is available to funding-eligible Master's or PhD level students enrolled in the Department of Sociology, Department of Political Studies, Department of Geography and Planning, Department of Philosophy, or the Cultural Studies Interdisciplinary Graduate Program. The recipient of the prize will be selected by a committee chaired by the Associate Deans or a delegate consisting of faculty members and a representative from the Arts and Science Advancement team.
Applicants should submit their 5000-word essay on the topic of radical critical theory and social justice along with contact information and area of study.
Applications will be open until February 15, 2024.
