Attention Graduate Students Presenting at NEPCA

NEPCA awards two cash prizes for best graduate student papers at its annual conferences. If you are presenting this October and your paper goes well, consider entering this competition.

The rules:

  1. Only your panel chair can nominate a paper. If you’d like to compete, approach your chair and ask that individual to nominate your paper.
  2. At some point after the conference, our prize committee will approach you and ask that you submit a written copy (by email) to the committee. This will necessitate that you transform your notes into a paper of roughly 10-12 pages (plus footnotes and bibliography).
  3. Your written paper should be as close as possible to the presentation you actually gave. Do not submit expanded versions, dissertation chapters, or long manuscripts.
  4. The committee will deliberate and the winners will be announced in the late spring or early summer of 2018 (depending upon how many papers are submitted).
  5. Winners will receive a cash prize, a certificate, and an invitation to attend our 2018 conference free of charge. (NEPCA does not cover food, lodging, or transportation costs.)
  6. You must make sure that NEPCA is kept up to date re: any email address changes and/or physical address changes. Put simply, NEPCA can’t honor you if it can’t find you!
