For members with accepted abstracts (oral or distributed) for the RC06 sessions at the ISA World Congress (Toronto, 2018), we are excited to announce the RC06 Early Stage Family Scholar Award (ESFSA):

A participation grant (US$1,000) may be awarded to an early stage family scholar who is judged to have authored the best original paper accepted at the ISA World Congress, RC06 sessions. Early stage scholars must submit full papers by April 1, 2018 to the chair of the ESFSA committee, Prof. Susan McDaniel:

Early stage scholars include graduate students currently completing a PhD degree or recent recipients of a PhD in Sociology or in a related discipline. Scholars with equivalent graduate degrees are also eligible. Recent recipients of a PhD must have earned the degree within the 3 years prior to dates of the World Congress. In case of joint or multiple authors, this rule applies to all authors of the submitted paper. Early stage scholars candidates must be RC06 members.

Guidelines are available here.

Papers due: April 1, 2018
