Please make sure to upload your essay in Microsoft Word format.
The Journal holds two separate student essay contests: the Andrew Wellington Cordier Contest and the Global Public Policy Network Contest. Although the winning authors of both contests are published and rewarded in the same way, the two contests have different eligibility guidelines. Students at Columbia SIPA are eligible for both contests and will be automatically entered for both upon submission.
Cordier Contest: Students currently enrolled at all Columbia Schools (both graduate and undergraduate).
GPPN Contest: Students currently enrolled at all
