To honor the scholarly achievements of Richard Block, as well as his role as co-founder of the Homicide Research Working Group, the membership has established a $500 thesis award and a $500 dissertation award for the outstanding thesis or dissertation with a focus on homicide and/or lethal violence. An additional $500 is provided to help cover expenses for the presentation at the HRWG meeting.


Eligibility for both awards include:

  1. The thesis or dissertation must have been completed during the twelve (12) months preceding the application deadline.

  2. The winners of the thesis or dissertation award agree to present their research at an annual meeting of the Homicide Research Working Group (typically at ASC).

  3. Application material must include the name and address of the applicant, a copy of the thesis or dissertation, and a cover letter from the supervising faculty member indicating that the thesis is part of the an accredited program leading to the graduate degree and the thesis or dissertation has been approved for the degree.

  4. The awards will be given annually if eligible and worthy candidates are available and chosen. There will be deemed no obligation on the part of the Homicide Research Working Group to issue these awards every year.

Please send any questions or nominations to Christian Bolden (cbolden@zmail.loyno.edu) prior to the deadline.
