The Bible Division invites M.Div. and M.A. seniors (both December 2022 and May 2023 graduates) to submit papers for consideration for the Milton Prize for outstanding work in Old Testament and/or the Bruce Prize for outstanding work in New Testament.
These prizes will be awarded at commencement and they include monetary awards, as well as bragging rights (a few current members of the faculty won these prizes as students here at Luther Seminary).
The papers submitted may be revised course papers, independent study projects, or papers written for this occasion. Papers should not exceed 6,000 words in length, and the primary focus of the papers should be the biblical text. The submissions should be academic papers, not devotional essays or sermons.
Learn more about the criteria for judging the papers at the following web pages:
The deadline for submitting papers is April 26, 2023.
