June 6, 2013 10:00 AM

There are three awards that will be presented at APPAM’s 2013 Fall Research Conference. The window for nominations is closing rapidly, so there is still time to enter.

NOTE: The deadline for both Ph.D. awards has been extended to July 15.

Award for Best Dissertation in Public Policy and Management

Any dissertation that has been completed in the academic years 2011-2012 or 2012-2013 and granted a degree in that period is eligible for consideration. No dissertation that has been completed prior to May 1, 2011, will be accepted. No previously submitted dissertations will be considered. Dissertations from any discipline are acceptable as long as they deal substantively with public policy issues and are nominated by a faculty member of a public policy program that is an institutional member of APPAM.

Winners receive a cash award in the amount of $1,500 in addition to a plaque, recognition at the annual APPAM Fall Research Conference, and publication of an abstract in the Journal of Policy Analysis and Management (JPAM). A separate grant covering travel costs to the Fall Research Conference will also be provided.
