The International Organization for Septuagint and Cognate Studies has requested submissions for this year’s John William Wevers Prize in Septuagint Studies (although the announcement here is from last year). The award honors the inimitable John William Wevers, responsible for the Göttingen critical edition of the Pentateuch, and is aimed at students and junior scholars. There is a $350 award, and submissions can be sent to Leonard Greenspoon (email address on the call for submissions linked to above). The deadline for submissions from last year was March 15, so it will probably be similar this time around. I’ll keep you updated when they put up a current call for submissions.
