My apologies for double posting.

The Bulletin of the IOSCS has just recently been published and in it was the announcement for the IOSCS's anhual prize for an outstanding paper in Septuagint Studies. Since the deadline was the end of August, the IOSCS did not want anyone interested in sending a paper not to do so. As a result the deadline has been extended until September 20, and I have appended the original announcement below.

Sincerely, Ben Wright Lehigh University


The International Organization for Septuagint and Cognate Studies is offering an annual prize of $250 to be awarded for an outstanding paper in the field of Septuagint Studies. This field is construed broadly, and a paper may focus on any aspect of the study of the Greek translations of the Jewish Scriptures. The IOSCS wants to encourage the study of these translations by younger scholars, and eligibility is thus limited to advanced graduate students or recent Ph.D. recipients (3 years or less after receiving the degree). The papers will be judged by a committee constituted of IOSCS members, and papers receiving prizes will be published in an appropriate form in the following Bulletin of the IOSCS. Depending on its assessments of the papers submitted, the committee may decide not to award the prize in any given year. The deadline for submission is August 31 of each year. Papers should be sent either to Leonard Greenspoon, President IOSCS, The Klutznick Chair in Jewish Civilization, Creighton University, Omaha, NE 68178 or to Benjamin G. Wright, Department of Religion Studies, Maginnes Hall, 9 W. Packer Ave., Lehigh University, Bethlehem, PA 18015.
