NASSP Conference Awards for Graduate Students
To promote new scholarship focusing on social philosophy and to encourage student participation, the North American Society for Social Philosophy has established the NASSP Awards for Best Graduate Student Papers. These awards give special recognition to papers to be read by a graduate student at the NASSP annual conference. The winners of the annual prizes will each receive $300 upon attendance at the annual International Social Philosophy Conference, and will be honored at the conference. The prizes are awarded only to conference attendees, though there is no obligation to use the money for conference-related costs. Any graduate student enrolled in a program towards a degree beyond the B.A. or first university diploma is eligible. The paper should be consistent with the framework of those presented at the International Social Philosophy Conference, addressing any topic in social philosophy. The papers will be evaluated by a three-member committee. The evaluation criteria include originality and quality of philosophical writing. Papers may be drawn from thesis work or intended for eventual publication, should be no more than 3,000 words, and conform to the requirements set out by the APA for colloquium submissions to annual Divisional meetings.

Deadline: March 15, 2010.
Both abstracts and completed papers should be submitted to the program committee as directed above for anonymous review. Please indicate that you wish to be considered for the Graduate Student Award in your email.
