The T G H James Memorial Essay Prize has been created by Association for the Study of Travel in Egypt and the Near East (ASTENE) to encourage Young people having an interest in Egypt and the Near East to learn about the lives and challenges of those who have travelled in the area over the centuries and also the local people they met.
The Prize is open to all under the age of 25. There are two prizes: one of £250 and another of £100. Each prize also includes a 2-year membership to ASTENE and a Bursary (covering the cost of accommodation and meals but not travel costs) to attend an ASTENE Conference to collect their prize. Both winning essays will appear in the quarterly ASTENE Bulletin.
Full information about the call is also available on the ASTENE website under:
