Deadline Extended: EBHA Dissertation Prize

During the 22nd Annual Congress of European Business History Association, which will take place on September 6-8, 2018, in Ancona, Italy, the EBHA will award a prize for the best dissertation in business history submitted to a European university in the previous two years. The submission deadline has been extended to April 30, 2018.
     Note that eligible dissertations do not have to be in English, but may be in any European language; as a European association, the EBHA values cultural and linguistic diversity.
     Three finalists will be selected from the dissertations submitted for consideration, and the authors will be required to give a presentation based on their dissertations at a plenary session at the EBHA congress in Ancona. All three finalists will receive a certificate that they have been among the short-listed candidates and will be eligible for reimbursement of part of their travel costs.
      All candidates wishing to enter the prize competition must attach a 1-2 page summary of their dissertation to the application along with a printed copy of the dissertation itself. The candidate must document that the thesis has been accepted. For full entry procedures, please see the relevant section of the EBHA meeting website.
