The Andrew W. Marshall Paper Prizes
As part of its mission to find and foster new voices to address strategic questions surrounding the long-term competitions facing the United States, the Andrew W. Marshall Foundation (AWMF) is offering two multi-round prizes of up to $13,000 for well-researched, intellectually bold work on Future Reconfigurations in Asia 2045 and New Revolutions in Military Affairs.
Winners will have the opportunity to present their work to leading scholars and practitioners in the national security field and beyond, and have their submission published as a “working paper” by AWMF.
AWMF seeks papers that are diagnostic rather than prescriptive; are informed and speculative; build upon a foundation of research; and employ an interdisciplinary approach.
Both paper prize competitions consist of three rounds. Submissions of abstracts for consideration for the Round One prizes are due by 11:59 PM ET on Monday, 28 June 2021.

These competitions are open to all. AWMF is eager to find new voices of any age, background, experience, or discipline, including practitioners and scholars from non-traditional backgrounds with knowledge and skills transferable to national security studies.
