The purpose of the Society for Army Historical Research Essay Prize Competition is to encourage, and reward, research undertaken by those in schools and universities. This is done every year by identifying, from appropriately submitted pieces of work, the best essay written on an aspect of the British Army’s history.
The competition is open to both University Undergraduates and Sixth Form School Students regardless of nationality and country of residence. There are two classes of entry ‘Undergraduate’ and ‘Sixth Form’. The winner in each class will receive a prize of £300 and the runner up a prize of £100, all of whom will receive a Certificate.
To accommodate the Academic year the latest date for submissions is 15 February in the year following the competition year. Thus, for example, the closing date for the 2014 Competition is 15 February 2015.
Prize winners and their parents, friend or tutor will be invited to the Templer Medal and Student Prize awards reception. This event takes place in the presence of Society Members every April in London.
