The Barnard Women Poets Prize is a major American literary award for a book of poetry in the English language.

From 1986-1999 the prize was called the Barnard New Women Poets Prize. It debuted sixteen debut collections, supported by the Axe-Houghton Foundation, the generous alumnae of Barnard College, and published by Beacon Press.

In the new century, Women Poets at Barnard, in collaboration with W.W. Norton, inaugurated a new book prize for the best second book by an American woman poet.
