Winners of the 2020 edition!

  • The list of the winners of the 2020 edition can be found here.

  • Congratulations to all the candidates! The AJFS Editorial Committee has been very impressed by the overall quality of the essays.

  • Due to the large number of applications (1000+), this 2020 edition has been very competitive: several high schools and universities are unfortunately not ranked in the top 20.

  • If you do not see your school or college, we encourage you to re-apply in 2021 as we intend to increase the number of winners over the next few years.

  • It should  also be noticed that schools with numerous candidates (e.g. 100+ students from Lafayette High School, LA) have produced more winners than other schools in the 2020 ranking.
