The Virginia Hodgkinson Research Book Prize honors the best new published research that focuses on, and is likely to positively impact, the application of new knowledge to practice and policy issues in the nonprofit realm. The award is given to the best book on philanthropy and the nonprofit sector that informs policy and practice. The prize is awarded in honor of Virginia Hodgkinson’s pioneering research on philanthropy and nonprofit organizations. Books must have been published within the three calendar years preceding the award (2014, 2015, and 2016). Books can be considered more than once. Entries must be published by a university press or commercial publishing house.
Submissions from any discipline and multi-disciplinary approaches are welcome; and submissions are encouraged from young scholars, practitioners working with other researchers. Prior prize recipients are ineligible for a five-year period after their award is received.
