Kenneth D. Wald Best Graduate Student Paper Award – Deadline: 15 April 2018

From the Chair:

Dear Religion and Politics Section Members,

The Kenneth D. Wald Best Graduate Student Paper Award is now open for nominations

The Award will be given annually to a conference paper studying any aspect of religion and politics presented by a Ph.D. student in political science. The conference can be affiliated with any of the US-based political science associations or a conference affiliated with another association, such as the Society for the Scientific Study of Religion, the American Academy of Religion, the Middle East Studies Association, or the International Studies Association, as long as the paper was written by a student or students enrolled in a graduate program in political science (at the time of the presentation). Papers written with faculty will not be considered. Papers presented at poster sessions are welcome. The award will be announced and presented at the annual APSA conference during the business meeting. The award committee is under no obligation to make an award if no submissions merit such recognition.

Deadline: 15 April 2018

Please send nominations (self-nomination is okay) including an electronic copy of the paper and an electronic copy of the conference program listing to the committee chair.
