Eligibility: Any student who presents, in person, a formal paper at the IASPM-US annual meeting is eligible for the prize. A student shall be defined as a person pursuing an active course of studies in a degree program. This includes persons who are engaged in writing the doctoral dissertation but not those who are teaching full-time while doing so. Student applicants must be members of IASPM-US.
Application Process: To apply for the prize, candidates must electronically submit a copy of their paper to email@example.com along with a brief bio (75 words) and copy of their conference registration receipt. The deadline for submissions is Thursday, March 6 at 11:59 pm. The paper deposited is to be the version that is read at the conference and may not exceed twelve double-spaced pages (roughly 3,900 words).
The winner will be announced at the general business meeting at the annual conference and the award includes a cash prize of $350.
