The History Faculty is soliciting nominations for the 2020 History Undergraduate Writing Prize, honoring excellence in historical research and writing. There are three awards of $300 that honor MIT historians John W. Dower, Pauline Maier, and Bruce Mazlish.
Eligibility: MIT and non-MIT undergraduate students who have taken a 21H subject in 2019-20, taught by an MIT History Faculty member may submit entries. Non-21H subjects are ineligible, unless the instructor has a joint appointment with the MIT History Faculty
- Paper should be roughly 10 pages, double spaced
- Video and audio recordings should be roughly 15-20 minutes or more in length.
- Other formats should reflect an equivalent investment of effort; the committee will apply these criteria flexibly in the interests of including the largest possible number and variety of submissions.
- Papers should include the title only. Leave out your name, subject number, subject title, and image (if submitting a visual project) as they will be anonymously evaluated by the prize committee.
Entry Deadline: Monday, May 25, 2020, 11:59pm, EST. No late entries accepted. Submit project/paper and entry form as a PDF to Meghan Pepin, email@example.com. If you have any questions, please send e-mail.
Winners will be notified by email and their names will appear on the history website by Monday, June 15.
