The Michigan Historical Review announces competition for the 2013 Graduate Student Essay Prize
Earn a cash prize of $1,000 and get your work published!
Have your scholarship published in the MHR after a blind review by a panel of professional historians in addition to the cash award.
Graduate student essays must be on the history of Michigan, the Great Lakes region, or their peoples. We welcome topics on American, Canadian, and Midwest history that explore themes related to Michiganís past.
Essays must include significant original research in primary sources and represent an addition to historical knowledge. They will be judged based on originality, research, writing style, and proper documentation.
Manuscripts should not exceed 10,000 words and should be double-spaced with endnotes double-spaced. To permit anonymous reviewing the authorís name should not appear in the manuscript.
The winning essayís author will receive $500 immediately and an additional $500 once the article is ready for publication. Strong essays that do not win may receive editorial advice and encouragement for publication.
Submit your essay and a cover letter identifying your school, program, and the paperís supervisor before July 1, 2013.
