Douglass Distinguished Scholar Series

The William A. Douglass Distinguished Scholar Series reflects the scholarly and creative achievements of academics, writers, and artists who received an annual award given in honor of William A. Douglass, founder and first director of the Center for Basque Studies at the University of Nevada, Reno. Established in 2005 in conjunction with the ministries of Education, Culture, and Foreign Affairs of the Basque Government, the William A. Douglass Distinguished Scholar Award enables specialists from the Basque Country to complete a substantial research, artistic or writing project during residency in Reno. The Center for Basque Studies publishes the results of such projects in this series.
