Eligibility: Awarded for an outstanding piece of work by an Honours student (3rd, 4th or 5th year undergraduate).
Applications are invited for the Robert Hillenbrand Prize in Islamic Art and Architecture. The prize will be awarded for an outstanding piece of work by an Honours student (3rd, 4th or 5th year Undergraduate) at the University of Edinburgh. Any written work assessed as part of the student's degree (such as a course essay, analytical project, or dissertation), with a focus on any aspect of the art, architecture and material culture of the Islamic world is eligible for submission. Preference may be given to longer works, such as dissertations, and the prize may only be awarded once to the same student. The deadline for applications is 1 May 2017. For further information, please contact Sue Cavanagh (firstname.lastname@example.org) in History of Art.
The Prize was established through the generosity of an anonymous donor in honour of Professor Robert Hillenbrand, a leading figure in the field of Islamic Art and Architecture, who taught at the University of Edinburgh between 1971 and 2007. Professor Hillenbrand is currently an Honorary Professorial Fellow at the University and continues to be an active member of our research community.
