In honor of Andrew Rippin, the International Qur’anic Studies Association (IQSA) will award a prize to the best paper delivered at the 2016 Annual Meeting in San Antonio by a graduate student or early career scholar (Ph.D. awarded 2011 or later).
The prize winner will receive $250 and an expanded and edited version of the paper will qualify for publication in the Journal of the International Qur’anic Studies Association 2 (2017).
Interested scholars should submit a draft of the paper which they read at the 2016 Annual Meeting at San Antonio; this draft should be no longer than fifteen double-spaced pages (or 3750 words). Submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 5, 2017. The prize winner will be announced by February 1, 2017. The winner should then be prepared to submit a fully revised version of the winning article by April 1, 2017. Publication of the final version is contingent upon review by the award committee and editorial staff of JIQSA.
Andrew Rippin was the inaugural president of the International Qur’anic Studies Association (2014). He is remembered as “an esteemed colleague, revered mentor, and scholarly inspiration to many members of the IQSA community.”

Just FYI, there seems to be a typo in the address to which the submissions are to be sent – I believe it should be email@example.com, not with the extra ‘j’ in the website. (mail sent to firstname.lastname@example.org bounces back)
Thanks Andrew! It should be up to date now – nice catch!
