Scholarship Description

Phi Alpha Theta and the World History Association are co-sponsoring a student paper prize in world history. An award of $400 will be given for the best undergraduate world history paper, and an additional award of $400 will be presented for the best graduate-level world history paper, both composed during the current academic year.

A world history paper is one that examines any historical issue with global implications. Such studies can include, but are not limited to, the exchange and interchange of cultures, the comparison of two or more civilizations or cultures, or the study in a macrohistorical manner of a phenomenon that had a global impact. For example, world history topics would include: a study of the trans-cultural impact of Eurasia's Silk Road; a comparative study of the Ottoman and British empires; or the worldwide impact of the Influenza Pandemic of 1919.

To qualify for this competition, students must be members of either The World History Association or Phi Alpha Theta and must have composed the paper while enrolled at an accredited college or university during the past academic year.
