The end of the academic year is approaching and most master’s theses are now entering the final phase. To accommodate and parallel the study calendar, we have decided to move the deadline for thesis submissions for the Internet Thesis Award.
Theses can be submitted (to: email@example.com) by the student or thesis supervisor until 11 August 2023, indicating the following details:
– Student’s name
– Correspondence address
– Name of university, thesis discipline and date of graduation
– A mark sheet or grade list showing the thesis grade
– The master’s thesis as a searchable PDF file
– Optional: a letter of recommendation from the thesis supervisor
The award ceremony will take place 11 October 2023 at a legal symposium in Amsterdam (to be announced later). During the ceremony, three finalists will be invited to briefly present their thesis, after which the jury will determine the winner and award the prize. In the assessment, in addition to the personal presentation, the originality and social relevance of the topic will weigh in, together with the overall quality and depth of the thesis.
For questions, please contact us by sending an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org
