Each year since 1993, the graduate program has awarded the Barry V. Qualls dissertation fellowship to a graduate student writing a dissertation on nineteenth century British and American literature and/or on women’s and gender studies. The fellowship is made possible by a generous gift from Dr. Caroline Huber, who completed her dissertation with Qualls in 1992. Past recipients of the Qualls dissertation fellowship are now teaching and conducting research at Yale University, Harvard University, the University of Maryland, Wadham College at Oxford University, Daniel Webster College, and Indiana University South Bend.

The English department is fortunate to have another gift connected to the Qualls family name. Qualls makes an annual gift in memory of his mother, Jamima Dingus Qualls, a portion of which goes to fund an annual prize for the best undergraduate essay on women writers or feminist issues in British or American literature.
