Guidelines
 

Educational Research Award

 

The Foundation for Restoration of Ste. Genevieve promotes scholarly historical study and publication of related books as means to communicate knowledge of the early settlement of Ste. Genevieve and the people who settled the region. As such, the Foundation offers an annual Educational Research Award for scholarly works of this nature.

 

Guidelines

 

Amount of Award:  The award will typically be $1000 annually. However, the Foundation for Restoration of Ste. Genevieve reserves the right to limit the amount in a given year based on the availability of funds.

 

Eligibility:  Masters and Doctorial candidates of any nationality from all academic disciplines who will be or is writing a thesis, conducting an advanced project (see following definition) or dissertation related to the Ste. Genevieve District. An advanced project might be creating an exhibit, an interpretive program, or a historic structures report.  Persons writing a book or having published a book within the last two years on the area are also eligible.

 

The award is a one time reward for Masters applicants.  At the discretion of the Foundation and the Selection Committee, a second award in a subsequent year may be made to those applicants writing a doctoral dissertation. Typically, the Foundation will only grant one award in a given year. However, at the discretion of the Foundation, more than one award may be made in a given year if additional funds (in increments of $1000) are available or if special funds can be raised for the specific purpose of granting more than one award.

 

Applicants who are from or have parents or grandparents living in Ste. Genevieve County will be given preference.

 

The successful recipient cannot be a member of the family of the selection committee members

 

 

Selection Calendar and Process:  Applicants will submit an application by September 30th on an annual basis. The application will describe their scholarly work and its relationship to the Ste. Genevieve District as well as the applicant’s curriculum vitae. The application form is attached.

 

Notification of the Award Winner: The winner will be invited to the annual Christmas meeting in the same year of selection for presentation of the award.  If they cannot attend, a suitable award date and method will be established.

 

Conditions of Award:  As a condition of accepting the award, the recipient agrees to furnish one copy of their thesis or dissertation to the Mecker Library.  If it is an advanced project, the exhibit or interpretive program will be furnished to the Foundation for use. If it is a historic structures survey, a copy of the survey will be furnished to the Foundation’s Mecker Research Library.
