For the second year running the RAF Museum is sponsoring a series of academic prizes to reward high-quality research in the field of air power studies broadly defined. The prizes consist of an award for the best undergraduate and Masters prize respectively and a bursary to support a PhD candidate in the final year of their studies. For the purpose of each prize, ‘air power studies’ is to be understood in its broadest sense, encompassing not only the history of air warfare broadly defined, but also related fields such as archaeology, international relations, strategic studies, law and ethics, and museology. The prizes are not confined to works focused on the RAF but includes those which help tell the Service’s story. Details for each prize can be found in the descriptors below.
Applications are open from 1 July 2017 to 1 October 2017, and the museum will make a decision towards the end of the year. If you are interested in entering or know anyone who is eligible to enter, then please consider applying for the prize.
