Best Thesis Award
Each year, the Centre for European Studies announces a Best Thesis Award for best essay with a connection to Europe. The current nomination period for the 2023 award runs until 1 September 2023.
The prize is awarded a bachelor's or master's (one- or two-year) thesis that has received the highest grade at one of the following faculties: Humanities, Social Sciences, Law or Economics and Management. Its topic must have a clear connection to Europe or the EU.
Supervisors, examiners, and heads of department may nominate theses. Self-nominations are also accepted.
