The Elizabeth Rockwell Center Prize

The Elizabeth D. Rockwell Center Prize for Best Article on Ethics, Leadership, and Public Policy is having a final call for submissions. The Center on Ethics and Leadership will award a prize of $10,000 for the best-published article on ethics, leadership, and public policy. An award of $2,500 will be given for honorable mention. Articles should have been published since November 2019 and all nominations must be received by September 20, 2022. Articles must be less than 12,500 words including notes and references.  Submit published copies of articles here; write Elizabeth D. Rockwell Center Prize in the subject line. Submissions will only be accepted from authors of articles and journal editors. Read below for more information, or contact Daniel Engster at

The main criteria for the award are:
1. Originality
2. Scholarly Excellence
3. Potential to impact our understanding of real-world ethics and/or leadership relating to public policy.

All articles should touch upon some aspect of public policy broadly defined. Ethics articles might develop normative positions on some policy issues (e.g., the ethics of immigration) or discuss ethical decision-making in a public policy setting. Leadership articles might address strategies for improving organizational efficiency. These are only examples and are not meant to be definitive. All methodological approaches are welcome. With the permission of the authors and journals where the winning articles have been published, the EDR Center may pursue the opportunity to publish an online book of prize-winning articles every few years.
