The year 2015 marks the centennial of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP).
As part of this celebration, the AAUP Foundation is pleased to announce competitions for undergraduates and graduate students for essays and artwork. The theme of both competitions is “Academic Freedom: Its Concept, Its History, Its Successes, and Its Failures.” In both categories and at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, prizes of $1,000 are available. The awards are made possible by a donation from the late Patricia Fox Haig.
The centennial contest is open to all students enrolled at accredited institutions of higher education in the United States. All essay and art work submissions must address the theme “Academic Freedom: Its Concept, Its History, Its Successes, and Its Failures.” Submissions must be sent to email@example.com by midnight (EST) on January 15, 2015. Up to two entries may be made by any one student. All entries must include the student’s full name, mailing address, and e-mail address as well as the name of the institution at which he or she is currently enrolled and the category (undergraduate or graduate student) of the entry. By submitting an essay or work of art, the student agrees that the work may be published if it is selected for an award and that the student will not be separately compensated for publication.
