Persian Translation Prize

Since 2001, the Roth Endowment has sponsored a Persian Translation Prize, juried by members of the American Institute of Iranian Studies (AIIrS). The Persian Translation Prize seeks to honor superlative English translations of both contemporary works and ancient Persian texts. In 2016, the Persian Translation Prize went to to contemporary works. The jury is currently considering works for the next edition, to be awarded in spring 2019.
