Hugo Weiland Prize
The Foundation for Austrian Studies invites lecturers of Dutch and Flemish universities to nominate talented students whose thesis investigates aspects of East-Central European history, politics and culture (i.e. the former lands of the Austro-Hungarian Empire; the Habsburg monarchy and its connections) for the Mr. Hugo Weiland Prize. This prize, established in honor of the founding president and current honorary chairman of the Leiden Austrian Studies Foundation is awarded to promising BA or MA theses. Each year BA and MA theses can be submitted; the committee will consider both categories, and can decide to nominate a prize winner for each category. Announced during the spring, the prize will be officially awarded in the fall. Candidates can be recommended by their supervisors after the completion and grading of their thesis. Taking into account delays caused by the Covid-19 crisis, we have postponed this year’s deadline to 1 December 2020. Supervisors are asked to send the thesis as an attachment to an email which shortly explains the merits of the work to: firstname.lastname@example.org
A sum of €500 is attached to this prize.
