> 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.
