The Glasscock Book Prize, first awarded in 1999, originated by the Texas A&M Center for Humanities Research, was permanently endowed in December 2000 by Melbern G. Glasscock ’59 and his wife Susanne M. Glasscock, for whom the prize is now named.
Applications for the 19th Annual Book Prize are due by Friday, June 15, 2018.
Submissions in the form of ‘crossover’ humanities books, which are informed by research and expertise yet appeal to a wider than academic audience, are encouraged.
