The Kenneth Sherrill Prize recognizes the best doctoral dissertation proposal for an empirical study of lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT) topics in political science. The purpose of this prize is to encourage and enable empirical work on LGBT topics by graduate students, and to broaden the recognition of this work within political science.

The Prize will award $200 to a selected PhD candidate, who will also be recognized at the APSA Awards Ceremony at the 2016 APSA Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, PA. Applicants must have successfully defended the prospectus for their dissertation, or intend to defend their prospectus by July 31, 2016.
