Deadline Extended!

Call for Nominations for FLARE’s 2024 Gould Award

The First Ladies Association for Research and Education (FLARE) has extended the nomination deadline for the Lewis L. Gould Award to Friday 26 July 2024. 

The Gould Award seeks to honor a FLARE member with a long and distinguished career that includes significant contributions to scholarship and education about first ladies. All members of FLARE are eligible for nomination except for those serving on the Gould Award Committee.

Nomination letters should persuasively address the following:

  • The quality, academic rigor, and influence of the nominee’s scholarship and publications;
  • The impact of the nominee’s public communication and educational activities;
  • The nominee’s fostering of additional knowledge about first ladies through teaching, institutional or public service (broadly construed); and
  • The influence and creativity of the nominee’s work or educational activities on other scholars, researchers, and/or the public.

Because the disciplinary specialization and area of focus of nominees may vary broadly, the Gould Award Committee members recognize that not all of the criteria may be relevant in every case.

This year's Committee is comprised of Anita McBride, Nichola Gutgold, and Nancy Kegan Smith, and is chaired by Stacy Cordery.

Please email all applications to Stacy Cordery at by Friday, 26 July.
