The Charles J. Goodwin Awards of Merit, three prizes given annually, are named in honor of a long-time member and generous benefactor of the Society for Classical Studies. They are the only honors for scholarly achievement given by the Society. The awards are presented at the Annual Meeting for an outstanding contribution to classical scholarship published by a member of the Society during the three years before the current calendar year, i.e., in this case, 2015, 2016, and 2017. Candidates to be considered must have been continuous members of the SCS continuously for the three previous years (since 2015). The SCS Office will verify the membership of authors.
