Scholarship Description

Phi Alpha Theta and the Western Front Association award an annual prize of $1,000 for an essay written by an undergraduate student at an American college or university. Honorable Mention certificates will be given to runners-up.

The essay must address the American experience in World War I and contribute to a better understanding of the impact of that global conflict on the United States and its people. It may treat virtually any aspect of the American involvement in the WWI era during the period from 1912 (the Second Moroccan Crisis) to 1924 (the Dawes Plan).

The paper must be from 12 to 15 typed pages, double-spaced using twelve-point font, exclusive of the title page, endnotes, and bibliography. There must be evidence of the use of primary sources. Papers that do not adhere to the guidelines will be disqualified.

Papers will be judged by a panel of historians from the Western Front Association, chaired by Graydon A. Tunstall, Executive Director of Phi Alpha Theta.
