Every year the Religious Studies program awards two prizes for the best essays written in Religious Studies courses in the past year. Now that the semester is over, I want to encourage you to consider submit your work to be considered for the prizes.
The William R. Coleman Prize: This book prize is offered to the student who has written the best essay in a religious studies course offered on the Keele Campus. It is awarded for courses completed in the previous fall/winter and summer session. Established to honour Professor William R. Coleman upon his retirement from the Department of Humanities. An inspired teacher, he served as a model of the interdisciplinary approach highly valued at York University. (Required Courses: 3000 or 4000 level Religious Studies course)
The Becky Lee Religion and Gender Essay Prize: This prize is awarded in the Fall term to an outstanding paper on the subject of Religion and Gender submitted for grading in a Religious Studies course in the previous academic year.
The deadline for submitting your essay is July 1st. We will announce the winners at our Religious Studies event in September.
