Nicholas T. Joost Award for Graduate Thesis in Literature

The award is open to graduate students enrolled in the Department of English Language and Literature with a specialization in American and English Literature who choose the thesis or three-paper plan option. The recipient will be chosen by a committee selected by the Chair of the Department of English Language and Literature. (The committee may include non-SIUE faculty.) The selection will be based on the quality of a thesis submitted by an applicant, or in the case of a student who chooses the three-paper plan, the quality of all three papers submitted. The amount of the award will be determined by the spendable earnings available from the endowment as well as any additional funds deposited in the award fund. If there are not any qualified applicants, the award will not be made that year.
