Two prizes of up to $13,000 awarded for well-researched work on Future Reconfigurations in Asia 2045 and New Revolutions in Military Affairs

JAFFREY, N.H. – May 10, 2021 – As part of its mission to find and foster new voices to address strategic questions surrounding the long-term competitions facing the United States, the Andrew W. Marshall Foundation (AWMF) is offering two multi-round prizes of up to $13,000 for well-researched, intellectually bold work on Future Reconfigurations in Asia 2045 and New Revolutions in Military Affairs.

AWMF seeks papers that are diagnostic rather than prescriptive; are informed and speculative; build upon a foundation of research; and employ an interdisciplinary approach. Read the competition guidelines at https://www.andrewwmarshallfoundation.org/prizes.

Winners will have the opportunity to present their work to leading scholars and practitioners in the national security field and beyond, and have their submission published as a “working paper” by AWMF. Both paper prize competitions consist of three rounds. Submissions of abstracts for consideration for the Round One prizes are due by 11:59 PM ET on Monday, June 28, 2021.

Round One:  Submission of Abstract Submission of Paper; Up to 10 Semi-Finalists Awarded $500

Round Two: Submission of Paper; Up to 5 Finalists Awarded $2,500

Round Three:  Submission of Final Paper; Grand Prize Winner Awarded $10,000

These competitions are open to all. AWMF is eager to find new voices of any age, background, experience, or discipline, including practitioners and scholars from non-traditional backgrounds with knowledge and skills transferable to national security studies.
