Awards & Grants

As part of our series of new initiatives, AAC is introducing two student paper prizes to be awarded annually for winning submissions in the following areas:

Octavia Butler/Ursula K. LeGuin Award

The Octavia Butler/Ursula K. LeGuin Award is for a student work of literary fiction that uses anthropological elements to envision a better world for all, or that seeks to change consciousness regarding any of the manifold problems plaguing the current one.

Stephan A. Schwartz Award

The Stephan A. Schwartz Award is for a student paper that contributes significant perspective/research to the discussion of the immaterial, or nonlocal aspects or “origins” of consciousness.

We plan to launch both student awards during the 2022 academic year. Please check back here regularly for submission information and other relevant details as we work to bring these awards, and others, to life for our members and partners.
