Perry World House, the University of Pennsylvania’s hub for global policy research, is partnering with Foreign Affairs, the preeminent outlet for analysis and debate of foreign policy, economics, and global affairs, for the 2021 Perry World House-Foreign Affairs Emerging Scholars Policy Prize.

This $10,000 prize encourages scholars to translate their own academic work to be more accessible to policymakers in positions of influence and to advance policy debates on significant issues in global affairs. The prize recognizes outstanding, original essays on any topic related to international issues that draw on original academic research and intend to influence policy debates.

The goal of the prize is to encourage new voices with new ideas on addressing both the long-standing and new challenges the world faces. To that end, we encourage scholars from ALL disciplines to apply. Scholars should submit original essays between 4,000 and 5,000 words, based on their academic scholarship. Submissions should be written in a format and style appropriate for publication in Foreign Affairs.

Prizes will be selected based on their overall excellence and alignment with Perry World House’s two research themes, which are:

  • The prize essay (can be single authored or co-authored);
  • The underlying academic scholarship the prize essay is based on (formats can include a published or forthcoming article/chapter, unpublished academic manuscripts, etc.); and
