- The International GRHS Essay Contest encourages students from around the world to learn about the history and culture of the German-Russians, people who emigrated from Germany into Russia during the 18th and 19th centuries. Today, in the USA, Canada and other countries in the Western Hemisphere, these people have become known as Germans from Russia.
The GRHS Essay Contest is open to all students attending public, private, parochial or home schools and to students attending accredited universities as full-time undergraduate students. The subject of the paper must be directly related to German-Russian history heritage or culture and be the contestant's original work. A contestant does not need to be ethnic German-Russian to enter the contest. The categories are: middle school, high school, high school senior, and university/college undergraduate.
Essay topics must include any and all aspects of German-Russian heritage including: cultural anthropology of the German-Russians, historical analysis of the reasons for the Diaspora (scatter) of the German-Russians, German-Russian history in the Americas and Canada, German-Russian history in Russia, the Soviet Union, loss of Soviet citizenship, labor camps in the Soviet Union, and labor camps in England and France after World War II; personal family history, insofar as it relates to German-Russian history and culture. Each category will have its own requirements so go to the scholarship provider's website for full details. Award amounts vary based on category.
