The GPSA Pajari Award is awarded annually to the best undergraduate paper presented by an undergraduate student as part of the Pajari Undergraduate Research Panel at the annual conference. In order to be chosen for the Pajari Undergraduate Research Panel, Professors must nominate undergraduate students for inclusion on the panel. Students may not self-nominate. Group papers are acceptable; however, faculty members may not be co-authors. Nominations should be sent by a Political Science faculty member to the GPSA Immediate Past President who chairs the Pajari Committee.
Unlike a regular conference paper proposal, consideration for the Pajari panel requires the completed paper as part of the application. The Pajari Award Committee selects the papers to be presented at the Pajari Panel Session at the annual Conference and chooses the best paper at the conference from those submitted each year to receive the award. All papers must be formatted as an MS Word or PDF document file. The file must be sent via email attachment to the Immediate Past President and the Program Chair. The winner(s) will be posted on the GPSA site each year.
Deadline: Sept. 1, 2017. Please include “Pajari Proposal Submission” in the subject line. For more information, contact Matthew L. Hipps.
