American Association for Ukrainian Studies (AAUS) invites nominations (including self-nominations) for the next round of the AAUS Book, Article, Translation Prizes, and launching this year – Graduate Student Prize. For this round, works published (graduate student papers completed) in 2021 and 2022 are eligible (as long as they were not nominated last year, as each work can be considered for a prize only once). Eligibility criteria are as follows. Deadline for nominated works to be received by all members of the respective prize committee is MARCH 1, 2023.

The AAUS Book Prize is awarded for the best scholarly monograph-length work in the field of Ukrainian history, politics, language, literature and culture published in English, preferably by a single author, but by no more than two. Textbooks, collections, bibliographies, reference works, and self-published books are ineligible. English translations of scholarly monographs published initially in another language will be considered on a case-by-case basis, but will generally not receive highest priority unless their content represents a major contribution to Ukrainian studies.

The AAUS Article Prize is awarded for the best article-length work in the field of Ukrainian history, politics, language, literature and culture published in English. Journal articles in peer-reviewed academic journals and chapters in scholarly collections are eligible.

The AAUS Translation Prize is awarded for the best translation into English of a book-length literary work originally published in Ukrainian.

The Lubomyr Hajda Graduate Student Prize is awarded to the best graduate student paper in the field of Ukrainian studies, including Ukrainian history, politics, language, literature and culture, published in English. The prize commemorates the immense impact Dr. Hajda has had on Ukrainian Studies scholarship and community in North America. Papers written by graduate students in 2021 or 2022 are eligible. Nomination by a faculty member is required.

Please submit nominations via the AAUS website by clicking on the relevant link to nominate a book, article, translation or graduate paper for the AAUS Prize. Copies or e-copies of nominated books (monographs and translations) must be sent to all members of the current AAUS Book Prize and AAUS Translation Prize committees, respectively. Mailing addresses of committee members are listed on the website. Works nominated for the Article Prize need to be submitted and uploaded via the website.
