Writing Competition


Hastert Essay Competition

Last year's winner of the Hastert Center Essay Competition is Jasmine Tan for her paper, “Trusting Relationships, Trading Relationships: The Relevance of Culture in Economic Transactions.” Submissions were judged based on scholarly contribution, clarity, originality, and organization by a panel of faculty readers from the Department of Politics and International Relations and Business and Economics.

The competition is designed to encourage and recognize excellence in academic research writing related to the nexus of economics, government, and public policy. For more information on the program, view the application (PDF).
