Mellor Book Prize
The Suzanne and James Mellor Prize of $50,000 was awarded annually to the author of the best proposal for a scholarly book on an individual woman artist or subject related to the mission of NMWA.
The purpose of the award was to encourage the highest quality scholarship on women artists from any time period or nationality and to enhance the role of the museum in shaping scholarly dialogue on women in the arts. The Mellor Prize Award is currently on hiatus.
