Academic Awards Program

In 2001, the “Best Graduate Paper Awards” competition was established by AMSS to encourage scholarship among graduate students participating in annual conferences. In 2009, this annual competition was expanded into an “Academic Awards Program” to include three separate awards: Annual Research Travel Grant; Annual Best Graduate Research Paper Awards Competition; and the Doctoral Scholarship Program.
