Call for applications: Sport and Society Graduate School Awards

Call for applications: Sport and Society Graduate School Awards

The Sport and Society knowledge community calls for applications for its Graduate Scholar Awards. Application deadline: 30 March 2015

In 2015, the Sport and Society community will organise the 6th International Conference on Sport and Society. For each conference, a small number of Graduate Scholar Awards are given to outstanding graduate students who have an active academic interest in the conference. Graduate scholars perform a critical role in the conference by chairing the parallel sessions, providing technical assistance in the sessions, participating in talking circles and presenting their own research papers. The award, with its accompanying responsibilities, provides a strong professional development opportunity for graduate students at this stage in their academic careers. Meeting experts in the field, interacting with colleagues from other parts of the world and creating networks and friendships are all additional benefits of this award.

Graduate scholars are entitled to free registration and are given special recognition during the conference proceedings. Applicants must be currently enrolled in a graduate studies programme. Awardees must be available on-site the day prior to the conference (for orientation and training) and throughout the conference.

Please find the application form in the downloads section.
