Autry Institute Prizes
The Annual $10,000 Maverick Prize
The Autry Institute at the Autry National Center invites nominations for the Maverick Prize—an annual award to recognize the work of an individual or organization that challenges conventional wisdom and prompts truly novel thinking about the past, present, and future of the American West. The winner of this prize will receive $10,000 and an invitation to present the work at the Autry National Center.
The Autry Public History Prize
The Autry Public History Prize is awarded annually by the Western History Association to media, exhibits, public programs, or written works that contribute to a broader public reflection and appreciation of the past or serve as a model of professional public history practice in the history of the North American West. The award consists of a $1,000 prize and a certificate to the award recipient. For more information, please visit the Western History Association.
The Butcher Scholar Award
Established in 2001 by the Women of the West Museum, the Butcher Scholar Award honors the vision, leadership, and generosity of Jane and Charlie Butcher. The Award supports original research that promise to deepen our understanding of the history of diverse women in the historical and contemporary West.
Through the Butcher Scholar Award, the Autry has supported research projects in western women’s history of emerging and established scholars since 2002. Beginning in 2012-2013, the Autry will expand the Butcher Scholar Award to a public program showcasing an invited speaker whose work breaks new ground in the history of western women.
The Autry continues to fund scholarly research projects and encourages historians of western women to apply for one of the many fellowships opportunities listed at http://theautry.org/research/fellowships
