The Chronicle of Higher Education announces its 2007 David W. Miller Award for Student Journalists. The award consists of a $2,500 prize and a certificate. Candidates may apply for the award by submitting up to three samples of published work accompanied by a one-page letter describing the articles and why they were chosen for submission. The samples of published work must have appeared in a campus publication during the 2006-7 academic year. Each piece of writing should be journalistic; using expository, explanatory, narrative or other techniques to report evenhandedly on a topic of intellectual interest. Opinion essays, personal columns, scholarly or research papers and articles that present the author's own research findings are ineligible. Candidates for the award must have been undergraduate students at the time their articles were published. Applicants may be students in any country, but their submissions must be in English. To apply, send all materials, including a contact address for the fall, to David W. Miller Award, The Chronicle of Higher Education, 1255 23rd Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20037, email@example.com. The deadline for submissions is June 1 and the winner will be announced in the fall. Applications may be submitted on paper or by e-mail. Writing samples may be original clippings, photocopies of clippings, printouts from publications' Web sites, or links to such Web sites. Applicants seeking the return of their materials should include a self-addressed, stamped envelope. Electronic-only submissions should be sent as straight-text e-mail messages, not as attachments. No telephone calls, please.
