Additional Information: The mission of American Educational Leaders (AEL) is in its strong belief in "American exceptionalism", i.e. that the United States is exceptional in the history of the world. All of AEL's programs are meant to encourage students to learn about, understand and appreciate some aspect of the American experience. Educating youth about basic American values, history and institutions is the best way to protect the American dream for all of its people. This essay contest is an opportunity for undergraduate students to express their equally strong belief in American exceptionalism. Essays will be judged not on the basis of agreement or disagreement with the views of AEL, or on the length of their bibliographies, but on the internal logic, coherence, originality, thoughtfulness, and evidence of sound research. Winners will be announced in August.

Award Amount: Awards are given as follows: first prize, $2,500; second prize, $1,500; third prize, $1,000.  The total dollars awarded for this scholarship is $5,000.
