Grad Student Best Paper Award

Rationale for Establishing the Award:  The award is designed to encourage graduate students to prepare and present research papers at the annual conference.  

Eligibility Criteria

To be eligible, the graduate student must:

  1. Be a current member of the Educational Statisticians SIG.
  2. Be first or sole author on a paper presented at the annual AERA conference (and be listed in the program as presenting author on the paper in either a paper presentation or roundtable session).  The nominee may have faculty or other graduate students as co-authors but, in this case, must be listed as first author on the paper and be presenting the paper.
  3. Upload the full version of the paper to be presented on the AERA portal.
