America in the World Consortium (AWC) Article Prize Submissions
The Consortium is also proud to announce a call for submissions for the America in the World Consortium (AWC) Article Prizes. It will offer two prizes for articles on issues in American foreign policy and grand strategy:
Best Research Article on U.S. Foreign Policy and Grand Strategy - $3,500 (Runner-up - $1,500)
Best Policy Article on U.S. Foreign Policy and Grand Strategy - $3,500 (Runner-up - $1,500)
Scope Research articles must have appeared in a peer-reviewed journal. Policy articles are defined as substantial works of analysis, addressing a major issue in American foreign policy and grand strategy, that have appeared in reasonably accessible policy-focused publications. These articles need not be peer-reviewed, but they should be based on significant research and systematic analysis. No op-eds.
Eligibility The Consortium encourages submissions by graduate students, pre- and post-doctoral fellows, untenured faculty, and faculty who received tenure in the three years preceding the submission deadline. To be eligible for the contest, articles must have been published, either in print or in digital form, between June 1, 2020 and May 30, 2021. Articles with two or more authors are eligible, so long as all authors meet the eligibility criteria. Articles must be submitted on or before the deadline and must focus on a topic in the broad remit of the scope outlined above to be eligible.
