Health, Health Policy, and Health Services Division
STUDENT PAPER COMPETITION
The Health, Health Policy, and Health Services Division invites graduate students to apply for its annual Graduate Student Paper Award. Papers should be related to the broad Division interest, including health and illness, health policy, and health services. Current graduate students and recent graduates who received their degrees after January 2023 may submit a paper if it was written while a student. Papers based on theses or dissertations are acceptable. Co-authored papers are acceptable as long as all listed authors were graduate students at the time the paper was written. Submission to other SSSP award competitions will disqualify the submission. The award recipient will present a version of the winning paper at a session of the 2024 SSSP Annual Meeting. Therefore, the paper must also be submitted through the annual meeting’s online submission portal (see the Call for Papers) for presentation at the conference by the conference submission deadline.
The recipient will receive a monetary prize of $150, a recognition plaque, student membership to SSSP, and conference registration. The winner will be recognized at the Division Meeting as well as the SSSP Awards Ceremony. Send an electronic copy of the paper and a cover letter identifying your graduate program and verifying that you meet the eligibility criteria to Yuying Shen (email@example.com) and Virginia Kuulei Berndt (firstname.lastname@example.org) by January 31, 2024. The paper submission should not exceed 30 double-spaced pages (including references) and should be prepared for anonymous review. Please include the author’s information only on a separate title page document.
