2013-14 AIPS Book Prize

The American Institute of Pakistan Studies is soliciting books (single authored monographs, no edited volumes) published during the last three years, or nearly published books (galleys must be available) for the annual AIPS book prize.

The award recipient will receive a monetary prize from AIPS ($1,000). In addition, AIPS will recommend the manuscript for publication in Pakistan with an appropriate press. Publishing in Pakistan is strongly encouraged but not a condition of the award. A publication subvention may be provided, as necessary. This award is funded by unrestricted funds and is not supported by United States federal grant funds.

A review committee will determine the awardee and can choose to designate no winner in any given year if worthy submissions are lacking. Applicants in all disciplines are encouraged to apply.

Deadline for 2013-14 Book Prize is February 1, 2014
