Are You a Young Calvin Scholar?

Part of The Calvin500 Tribute Conference in Geneva during July (schedule posted here), will feature an afternoon session devoted to papers presented by Young Calvin Scholars. To present a summary of a paper at the Geneva Conference on July 8, 2009 in the afternoon, the paper (5,000-7,500 words) must meet the following qualifications:

  • Must be submitted electronically in English to David Hall 
  • Must be submitted by June 12, 2009
  • Must be in MS Word format
  • Must be an original work by a registered participant that is attending the conference already
  • Must be under 45 years of age
  • Must have at least a Masters degree in related studies (M.S., M.A., M.A.R., M.T.S., M.Div., Th.M.)
  • Must focus on some topic addressed by John Calvin, using Calvin as a primary source

Prizes will be awarded, and recognition will be given in the published volume of Proceedings from the conference. Prizes are as follows:

  • First Prize $300
  • Second Prize $150
  • Third Prize $100

Professors, advisors, and participants are asked to spread the word and encourage some of our best young Calvin scholars to attend and present their work.

Since I reach all of the following, I decided to give it a shot. Below is a link of the paper that a friend and I wrote. I’ll be sure to write a post here in the next month letting you know if I made it or not. I’m hoping for the best, but you can read and see for yourself if I have a shot.
