The Phyllis Jones Memorial Award

Feb. 17, 2016

The Phyllis Jones Memorial Award

The Phyllis Jones Fund was established through gifts from students, colleagues, and friends of Phyllis Jones (1945-1982). Phyllis Jones was a member of the English Department and Chair of the Women's Studies Committee during its first four formative years. She contributed bravely and profoundly to the education and growth of women in the college and community.

This annual award in her name recognizes and honors student work in areas related to Phyllis Jones's interests: women writers, minority women, women in the community, and the integration of personal and professional goals for women. Applications are now being accepted for Spring 2016. Application deadline: Friday, April 8, 2016 by 2:00 p.m. Application can be found online at: http://new.oberlin.edu/arts-and-sciences/departments/gender/prizes/jones/Jones%20app%202016.pdf
