Peace History Society
Scott Bills Memorial Prize
The Peace History Society will award the Scott Bills Memorial Prize bi-annually (in odd years) for an outstanding English-language work in the field of Peace History. The Prize will be awarded for an outstanding first book or an outstanding dissertation by a faculty member or independent scholar. The Prize carries a cash award of $500.
The next Bills Prize will be awarded for a first book published or a dissertation completed in 2010-2011. Please submit nominations (a brief statement will suffice) and one copy of the book or dissertation directly to each member of the Bills Prize Committee by June 15, 2013.
