W.J. Eccles Prize

The W.J. Eccles Prize is to be awarded annually to the graduate student or recent post-graduate student judged to have published the best article in the society's journal French Colonial History. The prize is meant to encourage beginning academics in the field of French Colonial History and to honour the career of one of French Colonial History's greatest historians. Bill Eccles was an outstanding supporter of graduate students and this prize is meant to continue his work by encouraging those at the beginning of their careers in our field.
