The Kenneth Sherrill Fund was established in 2015 as part of the APSA Centennial Center for Political Science and Public Affairs. This fund supports the Kenneth Sherrill Prize, which will recognize the best doctoral dissertation proposal for empirical study of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) topics in political science. Through the Kenneth Sherrill Prize, APSA will be able to encourage and enable empirical work on LGBT topics by graduate students, and broaden recognition of this work within political science.
Kenneth Sherrill is a professor emeritus of political science at Hunter College, past chair of Hunter’s political science department from 1996 through 2005. Dr. Sherrill’s contributions to APSA include service on the Departmental Services Committee, Committee on Professional Ethics, Rights, & Freedoms, and Committee on the Status of Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, and the Transgendered in the Profession. He is also a past chair and program chair of APSA’s LBGT Caucus.
