Contest for a paper on national minorities

Department of National Minorities to the Government of the Republic of Lithuania has funded awards for college graduates who have prepared the best academic works dedicated to the theme of national minorities.

Those prizes are aimed at inspiring college students to be concerned about the issue of national minorities in Lithuania. They are also working as an incentive for the students to write their thesis in this field of study as part of different study programs.

Graduates of all courses may take part in the contest, provided that they will have successfully defended their thesis in the same academic year and that their paper will touch the matter of national minorities.

Department of National Minorities will fund three prizes, each for the author of the best BA, MA and PhD thesis.
