|The FDMC supports the SMH
cause of history by co-funding both the SMH-FDMC Prize for the best
Graduate Paper in Military History and by co-funding the SMH-FDMC prize
for the best Paper by an Undergraduate Student in History presented at
the NGPHC. The Graduate Prize is worth $400, and the Undergraduate
Prize is worth $200.
Rules for the Graduate Prize
The prize consists of a certificate and a monetary award. The prize is currently valued at $400. The recipient must be present to win.
The paper must be authored by an enrolled (at the time of submission) graduate student. The student's major professor must verify the student status. The paper should normally be presented in an SMH-sponsored session, unless combining it with others in a regular NGPHC session is more desirable. You should not present the same paper at another conference, and the winning paper should not be presented elsewhere, especially in competition.
The SMH coordinator will select three commentators/chairs to serve as judges. The judges should not have graduate students in their sessions.
Papers must be submitted promptly and must follow the guidelines and requirements to be competitive. Winners must be present to win.
Submissions for the CFDM-SMH Prize are due to Dr. Joseph Fitzharris by approximately 1 September at jcfitzharris <at> stthomas.edu
Rules for the Undergraduate Prize
Any undergraduate paper presented in the general sessions of the conference. Ideally, the winning paper should show the benefit of primary research as well as secondary research. The usual scholarly expectations of format, source-noting, bibliography, etc. would be expected.
The prize consists of a certificate and a monetary award. The prize is currently valued at $200. Winner must be present to win. Paper should not be/have been presented at another conference.
The Conference Chair or Program Director will select the judges.
NOTA BENE: If, in the opinion of the judges, no prize should awarded, there will be no award. The decisions of the judges are final.
