The Abraham Lincoln Association (ALA) and the Abraham Lincoln Institute (ALI) invite nominations, self-nominations, and submissions for the 2015 Hay-Nicolay Dissertation Award, which includes an honorarium of $1,000. Eligible doctoral dissertations must have been completed in 2012-2014 and must focus primarily on Abraham Lincoln’s life, career and/or legacy, preferably offering new interpretations, grounded in new evidence or primary source materials, and/or reevaluating previously accepted conclusions; comparative studies (e.g., leadership studies, biographies) will be considered as long as Abraham Lincoln is the main focus of more than one chapter; studies of individuals traditionally associated with Abraham Lincoln will also be considered. Selection is made by a joint ALA/ALI committee. The winner will be notified in December 2014, with the expectation of accepting in person (travel and lodging provided) at the ALA Banquet in February in Springfield, IL, or the ALI Symposium in March in College Park, MD. Submission of dissertations by email in PDF format preferred. To nominate, submit, or inquire, contact the chair of the selection committee, Prof. Scott A. Sandage, at firstname.lastname@example.org, Department of History BPH240, Carnegie Mellon University, 5000 Forbes Ave. Pittsburgh, PA 15213-3890.
