The Emily Dickinson International Society Scholarship Award 2022

EDIS is proud to announce an annual award recognizing distinguished publications on the work of Emily Dickinson for $1000. Our goal is to recognize, publicize, and encourage original research and outstanding achievement in Dickinson studies. We are happy to consider peer-reviewed articles, book chapters, essays in books, digital or multi-media projects. The work need not be devoted solely to Dickinson’s writing, but she should be a substantial focus. The award is open to scholars of any rank, but we will give preference to newer scholars in the field doing innovative work. Please send nominations (self-nominations are encouraged) to Ivy Schweitzer at for work published in the 2021 calendar year for our consideration for the prize. Use the subject line “EDIS.scholarshipprize.lastname,” include an explanatory note, and attach a document of or link to the work to your email. Please ensure that you receive confirmation of receipt. Applications are due by July 15, 2022. The Awards Committee will review the proposals; applicants will be notified of final decisions by August 15, 2022.
