The Berkeley Prize for Undergraduate Essays in German Studies

The Berkeley Undergraduate Essay Prize is awarded annually by the Department
of German for outstanding unpublished papers written during the previous
calendar year by undergraduate students enrolled at a North American
university/college. Thus the 2014 prize will consider papers written during
2013 on a broad range of topics in German studies. The winning essays carry
a cash award of USD 500 each and will be considered for publication in the
department’s electronic journal TRANSIT
jktfbRQcq2ysUukeFb4=> .

Essays for submission may be written in German or in English; one submission
per student. They should be double-spaced, between 3000 and 5000 words in
length (including notes and references), and without the student’s name on
the paper, since the Awards Committee reads the essays anonymously. A
separate cover sheet with the student’s name, title of the
paper, address, phone number, and e-address should accompany the submitted
essay. The essay may be submitted in hard copy or electronically. 

The submission deadline is February 15, 2014; winners announced May 2.
