Bennett-Tinsley Student Paper Award

This award encourages undergraduate research in a broad range of subjects related to Indiana and
rewards excellence in history research and writing. Many areas of the state’s past, especially related to
the history of women, minorities (including race, ethnicity, and gender/sexuality), refugees, peace and
social justice issues, and the environment have received limited attention in Indiana historiography. The
purpose of this competition is to recognize students who examine these topics and produce scholarship
that advances our knowledge of these understudied areas of Indiana history.
