The International Commission of Military History awards the "André Corvisier Prize for PhD thesis on Military History", named after the distinguished French scholar who was for ten years President of ICMH and then President of Honour

The PhD title can be obtained not necessarily in Military History, but also in other disciplines. However, the thesis must deal with Military History in the broadest sense: the history of warfare, of military campaigns, of the armed forces, of military thinking, diplomatic aspects of conflicts, causes and effects of wars, defence economics, civil-military relations, military technology, military leadership, and demographics of military forces.

For the 2018 edition, the prize will be awarded for a PhD thesis discussed and approved in 2017 in a recognized University.

The amount of the Prize is fixed at € 3.000 plus a maximum of € 1 .500 to cover the recipient’s expenses for participation at the award ceremony during the XLIV ICMH Congress in Jerusalem.

Participants must send a scanned certificate of the PhD title, a curriculum vitae, and a PdF copy of their thesis to Kris Quanten (Kris.Quanten@mil.be). The thesis may be in any language; however, a translation in any of the ICMH official languages (English, French, German, Italian and Spanish) is required if the language employed is different. This applies also to the scanned certification of the PhD title and to the curriculum vitae.

The winner will be required to write an article drawn from his thesis to be published in the International Journal of Military History and Historiography, after peer review.
