Winners of the 2021 edition!

  • The list of the winners of the 2021 edition: here.

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

  • Due to the large number of applications (1300+ students ; +30% YoY), this 2021 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 submit another essay in 2022 as we intend to increase the number of awards over the next few years. The 2022 Call for Short Papers (CFSP) will be published in January 2022 on this updated webpage.

  • It should also be noticed that the University of Notre Dame has two of its students in the top 20 of the 2021 Undergraduate ranking.

  • We would also like to thank the Consulate of France in New Orleans for its support and funding, for the 2021 edition.
