Shilin Young Scholar Award

The Shilin Young Scholar Award recognises outstanding work by BA students of Leiden University’s Chinese Studies department. The prize aims to also encourage a high level of scholarship, research, and writing among students. Nominations are determined by a jury consisting of two department members and a board member of Shilin. The thesis prize winner receives an award of €100 and a publication in the next edition of Shilin. All nominees will also be featured in future editions of our journal. The award ceremony takes place in September during the Thesis Symposium.

The Young Scholar Award has been made possible with support of Leiden University’s Chinese Studies department.

How to apply:
Both students and lecturers may put forward BA-theses by sending them to Shilin through the contact form, accompanied by the official feedback form. The thesis must be written at Leiden University’s Chinese Studies department and graded with an 8.0 (out of 10) or higher. The application deadline is 15 August 2016.
