The British Association for American Studies is pleased to announce the Ambassador’s Awards
There are three awards on offer: for Postgraduates, Undergraduates and a School Essay prize.
The organisers are looking for essays that explore any aspect of the American experience, from the perspective of history, literature, film, politics or any other related or inter-related discipline. Essays submitted in any category may be adapted from coursework or ongoing research projects that students are engaged in, but they must conform to word length and the appropriate presentation style required by the judging panel for each award. In addition, they request that each entry for the School Essay prize should be accompanied by a signed letter from the student’s teacher, certifying the applicant’s status. For the Undergraduate and Postgraduate Essay prizes, the organisers request that no more than six essays at each level (UG / PG) per undergraduate department or programme should be submitted, each with a signed note by the Head of Dept or tutor certifying the applicant’s registered status.
