To honor the 750th anniversary of St. Thomas Aquinas's dies natalis in 2024, The Thomist will begin an annual competition for rising scholars who are within the first four years after having earned their doctorate.  For the first annual award, scholars in this category may submit an article to The Thomist by March 7, 2024.  All submissions must meet the normal criteria of submission to the journal and should be clearly marked in the electronic submission (but not in the submission itself) that they are to be considered for The Thomist Rising Scholar Award.  The winning submission will be published in The Thomist and its author will receive $1,000.
