The prize will be awarded for the best dissertation (up to 15,000 words) by a currently registered undergraduate or postgraduate student, or by a person who received his or her undergraduate or postgraduate degree in 2013, at a university or equivalent institution in the UK.

The word limits exclude footnotes and bibliography. The work should offer some originality, either in its research or approach or argument, relating to the history of the United States between roughly 1789 and 1917. The value of the prize will normally be £200.

Candidates should submit THREE copies of their dissertation by the closing date, and must include a letter from an institutional representative, tutor, teacher or supervisor attesting that the candidate is registered for an undergraduate or postgraduate degree, or received the appropriate degree in 2015. Candidate’s names should appear only on the covering letter and letter from the institutional representative.

All dissertations will be assessed anonymously by a committee appointed by the BrANCH committee.

The closing date for submissions for the 2015 prize is 30 November 2014. The results will be announced in February 2016.
