Grant of the Week: Webb/Smith Essay Competition on The Economics of Higher Education in the United States

Sadie Bergen | Nov 10, 2016

Every week, AHA Today showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship of interest to historians which has been posted to our free Calendar. This week we are featuring the Webb/Smith Essay Competition from the University of Texas at Arlington.

The Department of History at the University of Texas at Arlington is announcing its annual Webb/Smith Essay Competition as part of the 52nd annual Walter Prescott Webb Memorial Lecture Series.

We invite original, unpublished article-length essays (maximum 10,000 words plus endnotes) from a range of disciplines that include history, political science, economics, sociology, and civil society studies. Essays should provide analyses of the economics of American higher education from the 19th to the 21st century. We are also interested in essays that compare the funding of institutions of higher education in the United States with the funding of universities in other countries. We welcome submissions anchored in different theoretical and methodological perspectives. Submissions may deal with any aspect of university and college funding as well as with funding for research and development. A prize of $500 will be awarded to the author of the winning entry which will be included in the edited volume The Economics of Higher Education to be published by Texas A&M University Press. The deadline for submissions is December 15, 2016 (date of receipt). Essays should be submitted electronically to the organizers of this Webb Lecture Dr. Thomas Adam (adam@uta.edu) and Dr. A. Burcu Bayram (bayram@uark.edu).

End: December 15, 2016
