The Victoria Schuck Award is given annually for the best book published on women and politics. It carries a prize of $1,000.
Established to honor Victoria Schuck's life-long commitment to women and politics, this prize recognizes and encourage research and publication in this field. Schuck earned her PhD in 1937 from Stanford University and played a leading role in opening doors for women in the profession. She was not only an outstanding mentor for women, but her service in senior administrative roles at Mt Holyoke College and Mount Vernon College opened doors for future generations of women leaders.
