Have you recently written an honours thesis for your Bachelor’s degree? Or another similar in-depth study? If so, did you enjoy the research and writing process, despite the study interruptions resulting from the pandemic? Did it turn out well in the end?
If so, you might consider capping it off by applying for this year’s JAPE Young Scholars’ Award.
Each year the editors of the Journal of Australian Political Economy consider applications from students who are interested in converting their research and writing into an article for publication in an academic journal. The successful applicant gets $2,000 and personal advice and guidance about producing an article of publishable standard. The article can be considered for inclusion in a future issue of JAPE.
Applications normally close at the end of November each year. This year, however, because of the study interruptions during the pandemic, the deadline has been extended until January 17th.
Applicants may be from any Australian tertiary educational institution, but not from institutions outside Australia. Applications need to be submitted to the JAPE editorial coordinator, Frank Stilwell [firstname.lastname@example.org]. Further info about the Award and the application process is available on the JAPE Young Scholars’ Award page.
