The Bertrand Russell Society invites papers for our BRS annual Student Essay competition. We award two prizes annually for the best new papers by an undergraduate, graduate student or non-member non-academic. Prize-winners will present their papers at the Society's next Annual Meeting, receive $200, free registration, lodging and banquet at the Annual Meeting, and a complimentary first-year membership in The Bertrand Russell Society. Papers can be on any aspect of Russell's life, work, or influence. They must be suitable for presentation to a general audience, and 20 to 30 minutes in length (10 to 12 double-spaced pages of text).

Submit a complete or nearly complete paper, not an abstract. State that you would, if chosen, attend the BRS Annual Meeting. Those previously appearing on an Annual Meeting program are not eligible. Submit your paper to BRS President Alan Schwerin (aschweri at monmouth dot edu). Past prize winners are listed here.

Be sure to query her first for deadlines.
