The Ray and Pat Browne Award is given to the best graduate paper in popular culture and the Roger Rollin Award is given to the best graduate paper in American culture.

Undergraduates are eligible for two awards for the best papers in popular culture and American culture.

Each award carries a monetary prize of $140, the current conference registration fee.
