Emerging Scholar Awards

A small number of Emerging Scholar Awards are given to outstanding graduate students and emerging scholars who have an active research interest in the conference themes. The Award provides a strong professional development opportunity for early career academics—meeting experts in the field, interacting with colleagues from other parts of the world, and creating networks and lasting connections. Awardees are invited to attend the conference to present their work and play a critical organizational role in the conference by leading discussions, chairing parallel sessions, and providing assistance in session rooms.

Applications are open to those pursuing research degrees, post- and graduate students, as well as early career faculty.

In Their Words

The chance to chair parallel sessions and to lead discussions for the talking circles was an excellent learning opportunity. I am indeed going to use the knowledge to strengthen my ongoing and future works."

I learned many things from all the presentations I viewed and helped facilitate. It was eye-opening, and I hope to continue to attend and be involved in research and this conference in future years."
