For this reason, two annual prizes are awarded, the Johann-Kaspar-Zeuß-Prize of the SCE for the best MA thesis in Celtic Studies and the Johann-Kaspar-Zeuß-Prize of the SCE for the best PhD thesis in Celtic Studies. The regulations can be found here. The submission date for theses accepted in 2016 is 1 March 2017. Please send your proposals to the president.
