Outstanding Dissertation Prize

The purpose of the Outstanding Dissertation Prize is to provide recognition to a young scholar who has significantly advanced our understanding of Latin America or the Caribbean. Eligible dissertations may be in any discipline in the social sciences and humanities, and must have been completed at a Canadian university. Generally calls for submissions are made in the fall, with the prize awarded in the spring at the annual CALACS Congress.
