Dear ICMH Colleagues and Associates,
On behalf of the President, International Commission of Military History, I am pleased to announce the 2022 ICMH 2022 Corvisier Prize for Ph.D. Theses in Military History competition.
The International Commission of Military History awards the “André Corvisier Prize for Ph.D. Theses in Military History,” named after the distinguished French scholar who served for ten years as President and later as President of Honour of ICMH.
The Ph.D. degree can be awarded in any academic discipline and is not restricted to Military History only. However, the thesis must deal with Military History in the broadest sense: the history of warfare, military campaigns, the armed forces, military thought and philosophy, diplomatic aspects of conflicts, causes and effects of wars, defence economics, civil-military relations, military technology, military leadership, and demographics of military forces. To be eligible, applicants must come from a country where there is an ICMH National Commission or, if there isn’t one, they must apply and be accepted as ICMH Individual Affiliate Scholars.
For the 2022 edition, the prize will be awarded for a Ph.D. thesis approved in 2021 at a recognized university. The amount of the Prize is fixed at € 3,000 plus a maximum of € 1,500 to cover the recipient’s expenses for participation at the award ceremony during the XLVII ICMH Congress in August-September 2022.
Applicant eligibility and submission procedures are outlined in the attachment, which is also posted to the ICMH website. Please disseminate this announcement widely, to all national commission members and associated scholars. This is a wonderful opportunity for a young scholar to achieve great credibility and recognition in, and contribute to, the international military history community. Good luck!
