Outstanding Graduate Research Award
Nominations due by February 15, 2017.
The CORD Graduate Research Award recognizes an outstanding research paper (or papers) prepared by individuals currently pursuing graduate studies. Papers will be evaluated based on their originality of research, articulation of argument, and clarity of writing. The paper should have a scope and length appropriate for a conference presentation.
Any individual enrolled in a graduate program at the time of paper submission is eligible. The student does not have to be a CORD member at the time of submission, but she or he will have to be a CORD member in order to accept the award.
Individuals interested in having their work considered for the award should submit an abstract of their paper for review by the conference committee by February 15, 2017. Abstracts will be reviewed by the Conference Program Committee, and those accepted for presentation at the conference will be asked to submit the full paper by May 25, 2017.
Full papers should be no longer than 12 pages, not including the bibliography, which should be attached or listed in footnotes and submitted as a Microsoft Word document (and not a .pdf). All submissions must be typed in 12-point font, double-spaced, and have page numbers included on each page. Since there will be a blind review process, the name of the author should not appear in the paper, but should be attached on a separate cover sheet that lists the author’s name, university affiliation, and contact information. Please follow these guidelines to be considered. For any questions, email email@example.com.
