Sociology of Population Section Student Paper Award
The Sociology of Population Section announces the call for papers for the Student Paper Award in social demography. The deadline for submission is February 15, 2013. This award consists of a certificate and support for travel expenses to attend the 2012 ASA meeting in Denver. The following are criteria for submission:
The unpublished or published paper can be sole-authored or have multiple student authors. While there is no page limit, papers should be concise and focused. This is not a dissertation award competition. No faculty co-authors are allowed. All authors must be currently enrolled in graduate school or have completed their Ph.D. degrees on or after January 1, 2013. The paper must use a sociological perspective to address an issue of relevance to contemporary demography, broadly defined. Purely technical papers are not eligible. The paper need not be on the ASA program, and membership in the Population Section of the ASA is not a requirement for this award. The cover page of the paper should include a title and an abstract, but should have no other identifying information, such as name, university affiliation, address, or acknowledgements. A single copy of a cover paper containing the author's name, affiliation, address, and other identifying information should be included. The paper should be submitted on 8 1/2 x 11 inch paper via email by the deadline date.
