Comparative Theology: Society for Buddhist-Christian Studies Graduate Essay Award

2012 Graduate Student Essay Competition

In order to encourage the participation of interested graduate students in the Society for Buddhist-Christian Studies, the Society is continuing its annual graduate student essay award competition this spring.

We are now accepting any essays written by graduate students for one of their classes related to the area of Buddhist-Christian studies. Faculty members are asked to encourage those students who have written excellent papers to submit those papers for consideration.

To submit a paper, students themselves should e-mail it to Glenn Willis at Together with the submission, students should include a cover letter that lists the following: student’s name, program, institution, e-mail address, the course for which the paper was prepared, and the professor of that course. The deadline for submission is May 30, 2012.

The winner of the competition will receive a $500 award, and must present the paper during the annual meeting of the society for Buddhist-Christian Studies in Chicago, IL, Nov. 17-20, 2012.
