The GSC Community Building Award

The GSC Community Building Award
The Medieval Academy of America Graduate Student Committee

Dear Graduate Student Colleagues,

We wanted to bring to your attention a Special Award being offered this year by the Graduate Student Committee of the Medieval Academy of America. During the 2021-2022 term, the GSC has been committed to thinking creatively about increasing accessibility of the wider public to the knowledge that we, as scholars of the Middle Ages, are producing. We would also like to recognize initiatives of other graduate students that aim to do the same. Thus, the GSC is offering a special award: The GSC Community Building Award. Three graduate students will be awarded $400 to begin or support ongoing projects that creatively seek to close the gap between the academy and the community. Projects may include (but are not limited to): creation or compilation of OER resources, podcasting initiatives, community workshops, performances, free access video lectures, maps (such as StoryMaps), databases, blogs/newsletters, and digital exhibitions. Both individuals and groups are encouraged to apply.

For the application instructions and to submit your application, please go to:

Deadline: January 17, 2022.

Feel free to direct any questions you might have to Jonathan Correa ( and Lauren Van Nest (

Kind regards,

Jonathan Correa
