Essay Prizes

Ceræ is delighted to offer a prize for Volume 7 of $200 (AUD), which will be awarded to the best themed or non-themed article submission submitted by a graduate student or early-career researcher (ECR). Ceræ considers the definition of an ECR:

  • to be someone who has either been awarded their doctorate not more than 5 years prior to submitting their article for consideration,
  • or has been awarded a masters-level or bachelor-level degree,
  • and that a graduate student must be either currently enrolled in a higher-research degree, or have a dissertation currently under review.

Ceræ is able to offer this prize thanks to the generosity of our past and present sponsors. For a full list of the organisations which support us, please visit our Sponsorship page. For more details on all our previous prize winners, please see the blog posts under Prizes and Bursaries.
