Description: This is an essay contest for U.S. and international undergraduate and graduate students. Students must submit an essay deemed appropriate for the journal Romani Studies.

Application requirements for the Young Scholars Prize in Romani Studies are:

  • Essay
  • Cover letter
  • Abstract
Additional Information: In order to be eligible, the submitted paper must be unpublished and not under consideration for publication at the time of submission. However, papers that have appeared in a "working paper" series are still eligible for consideration in the competition. Those that have appeared in conference proceedings volumes of any sort are not eligible, unless they are substantially revised and/or expanded. Written versions of papers that have been presented at a conference are eligible, as are papers based on chapters of dissertations or M.A. theses (raw dissertation chapters or M.A. theses themselves are not eligible). In all cases, however, the selection committee will look for self-contained scholarly articles of publishable quality that treat some relevant topic in an interesting and insightful way. The prize committee also invites submissions in languages other than English. The committee will identify suitable referees for such languages, but if it cannot find them, then the paper is not accepted for this year's prize. The screening committee expects to make the announcement of the winner by Jan. 30, 2019. The committee reserves the right not to award the prize in a given year. The winning paper will be published, after any necessary revisions, in an issue of the journal Romani Studies.

Award Amount: $500 annually, non-renewable.  The total dollars awarded for this scholarship is $500.
