Emerging Scholar Awards

A small number of Emerging Scholar Awards are given to outstanding graduate students and emerging scholars who have an active research interest in the conference themes. The Award provides a strong professional development opportunity for early career academics—meeting experts in the field, interacting with colleagues from other parts of the world, and creating networks and lasting connections. Awardees are invited to attend the conference to present their work and play a critical organizational role in the conference by leading discussions, chairing parallel sessions, and providing assistance in session rooms.

Applications are open to those pursuing research degrees, post- and graduate students, as well as early career faculty.

In Their Words

My favorite part of this conference experience was the talking circle. It was interesting to hear the backgrounds and fields of the researchers and professionals present because they gave some some ideas for my own career"

Viktoria Konyves, 2017 Awardee

This was my first time chairing sessions, and I think I learned a lot from this. There are a lot of personalities and preferences to navigate and it was good to have experience doing so."
