SCORAI PRIZE FOR OUTSTANDING EARLY CAREER SCHOLAR PAPER

The Sustainable Consumption Research and Action Initiative is proud to announce the first SCORAI prize for an outstanding paper by an early career scholar. The prize of $500 is intended to recognize an outstanding early career scholar based upon a paper presented at the SCORAI 2016 conference. Two additional prizes of $200 each will be available for papers that merit a second and third place award in the competition.

Young scholars are defined as being enrolled in a graduate program or are within four years from when they earned their PhD or equivalent.  

The prize will recognize papers that are well written, theoretically and/or empirically innovative, and make an original contribution to understanding sustainable consumption. The selection process will be conducted by a committee of diverse scholars in the field of sustainable consumption.  

To apply send a cover letter and your final paper to Rachael Shwom (shwomrac@rci.rutgers.edu) with the subject heading ”YOUR LAST NAME: EARLY CAREER SCHOLAR PAPER.”  Your cover letter should provide information on your eligibility for the early career scholar paper prize (that you are currently a graduate student or that you earned your PhD prior to June 15, 2011).
