LGBTQ Studies Creative and Scholarly Works Contest -- Undergraduate
The LGBTQ Studies Program’s Creative and Scholarly Works Contest is open to all DePaul undergraduate students, regardless of home college. We accept essays and projects in the interdisciplinary field of LGBTQ Studies. The submissions may come from any discipline, and they must address a topic, theme, or issue relevant to LGBTQ Studies. Works can be research-based essays or creative writing, as well as work done in other media such as film, design, or web pages. There is no length requirement. Entrants need not be in the LGBTQ Studies minor program. In addition to a $250 cash prize, there may be an opportunity to be published in Creating Knowledge, the undergraduate research journal of the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences. In addition, the prize winner will be recognized at the Annual Lavender Graduation. Submissions may have originated within a course or outside of a course.
