The 2019 Abdel Ross Wentz Prize for Historical Writing on American Lutheran History. Wentz was a leading figure in American Lutheranism, and his family established with the Lutheran Historical Society of the Mid-Atlantic an endowment providing prize money for the best history paper on a topic related to North American Lutheranism produced by a first-degree seminarian or graduate student. The prize is in the amount of $2,500. Read more about Wentz and the prize details on the society’s website.
Papers for consideration by the prize committee should include a letter of recommendation from a professor along with two copies and a cover sheet which includes the author’s contact information (address, phone, email), institution, and degree program to be postmarked by August 31, 2019 and mailed to:
