e-IR offers students at all levels the chance to have their work recognised with an e-IR Essay Award. Pieces which are published with the ‘Essay Award’ banner have been nominated by a teaching academic at the student’s university/college, and are judged to be among the best work produced in their class.
e-IR does not allocate Essay Awards without a direct recommendation from a teaching academic. We are glad to accept recommendation for the award from any country/institution with the provisio that the level of written English must be to a publishable standard.
INFORMATION FOR TEACHING ACADEMICS
Academic handbooks often note that highly graded essays are ‘good enough to be published’ – well, now you can make that happen. If you are interested in offering your students the chance to have their hard work recognised, we invite you to highlight the award in your classes and in your course kits. Essay awards are a great way to recognise excellent work.
Once you have selected the best essay(s) from your course, simply email us your nomination(s) with the student CCd so that we can coordinate with them to publish the piece.
Please give your email the subject/title ‘Essay Award‘.
For reasons of verification, all emails to us must come from an academic email (not gmail/yahoo etc..). If you have any questions, email us and a member of our student submissions team will get back to you.
INFORMATION FOR STUDENTS
If you are a student and would like your professor or department to issue e-IR Essay Awards, then we invite you to contact your professor/lecturer/tutor and make them aware of the scheme. Please note, that while we are happy to contact academic staff to promote general awareness of the award, we are unable to contact them and petition them over specific pieces of student work.
If you have any questions, email us and a member of our student submissions team will get back to you.
