Outstanding Graduate Research Award
CORD is now accepting nominations for this award.
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 will submit an electronic copy of the completed paper to Judith Hamera, Chair, CORD Awards Committee, at email@example.com, as well as the abstract required for all proposals (see Conference Guidelines). The deadline is October 31, 2014.
Full papers should be no longer than 12 pages, not including the bibliography, which should be attached or listed in footnotes. 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. Submissions that do not adhere to these guidelines will not be considered.
