Essay Award

The E-IR Essay Award, sponsored by Routledge, is issued to an outstanding student essay published on E-IR each calendar month. Twelve awards will be made across the year, starting in February 2014, with each winner receiving £100 worth of books from Routledge.

The award is selected by the E-IR Editorial Team, who screen all essays published on the website. With over 1000 essay submissions made to E-IR every year, the award aims to reward undergraduate and Masters students worldwide who share their best work to the benefit of their global peer group. Previous winners of E-IR Essay Awards can be found here.

Submit your essay to be published on E-IR in order to be considered for the award.

NB: While we may select your essay for publication, this does not necessarily mean we will then select it for the award as only one published essay each month can win the award. Whether you win the award or not, publication on E-IR is a great achievement and something you should be proud of.
