The Council for European Studies is offering Undergraduate Paper Prizes.
Northern Illinois University is a member of the Council for European Studies, so NIU undergraduate students are encouraged to submit papers for these prizes in the Humanities and the Social Sciences.
The CES announcement reads:
CES still welcomes submissions for the inaugural European Studies Undergraduate Paper Prize. The Paper Prize is given for the best advanced research paper written in English on any subject in European Studies as part of an undergraduate university degree program.
Two prizes will be awarded in 2016, one in the Humanities and one in the Social Sciences. Each prize winner will receive a $500 award, a CES conference fee waiver, and public recognition.
Nominations will be accepted until May 30, 2016.
