MANILA, Philippines — The National Commission for Culture and the Arts has launched its call for nominations for the Young Historian’s Prize 2022.
The said award was established by the NCCA’s National Committee on Historical Research to recognize the potential of young Filipino scholars based on a single original work in the field of Philippine history and historiography that fosters a “sense of national identity, pride, and national interest.”
It will be given to an individual whose work has met the following criteria: the nominee must be a Filipino citizen between 21–40 years old at the time of submission; must be single authorship; original work; entry must be written in proper academic style; entry can either be published or publishable work; and must have used primary sources that can contribute to the enrichment of Philippine history and historiography.
The NCCA needs a duly accomplished nomination form along with the author’s curriculum vitae, NSO certified birth certificate, notarized sworn statement of authorship, manuscript in a PDF file soft copy and three sets of hard copies, all of which should not bear the author’s name or any reference to the author; and two endorsement letters from an academic institution, local historical society, or practicing historian.
Interested participants have until April 15 to submit their documents to the following address:
