Ann O'Hara Graff Memorial Award
Awarded by the Women's Consultation in Constructive Theology

The Ann O’Hara Graff award was established to honor the life and recognize the scholarly commitments of our late colleague Ann O’Hara Graff, whose insight and passion combined to weave theology constructively together with life outside the academy. 

Each year the Women’s Consultation in Constructive Theology invites members of the CTSA to nominate a woman member of the CTSA whose accomplishments include the various types of woman-defined scholarship, and liberating action on behalf of women in the church and/or the broader community.
