Institute of Historical Research
School of Advanced Study, University of London
The Neale Prize is awarded annually to a historian in the early stages of his or her career. Entries should take the form of essays of no more than 8,000 words (including footnotes) on a theme related to the history of early modern Britain. It is intended that the terms of the prize include almost any subject appropriate to the study of 1450-1700 in Britain. Eligibility will ultimately be decided by the judges.
Entries must not have been published or accepted for publication elsewhere, since the prize-winning essay will be considered for publication in the IHR's journal, Historical Research. A suitable academic mentor will be appointed to provide advice on career development and research for the prizewinner. The prize-winner is also expected to take part in the academic life of the IHR, for example, by attending seminars and presenting papers.
Candidates must either be registered for a postgraduate degree at a British institution or have been registered for such a degree at a British institution within the last three years.
The prize will consist of £1,000 with an additional payment of £500 in support of the development of the prize-winner's scholarly career, normally in the form of research and/or travel expenses and conference attendance.
Complete applications must be received at the Institute of Historical Research no later than 15 April 2016. Incomplete applications or applications arriving after this date will not be considered. Two supporting letters of reference must be received by no later than 22 April 2016.
