The Candace Rogers Award Committee invites submissions for the 2022 Candace Rogers Award. This award is given annually at the ESS meeting to a graduate student for an outstanding paper on any current social issue.

The paper may not be previously published or forthcoming in a professional journal. It may not be coauthored, and its author must be a graduate student at the time the paper is submitted.

The award will be announced and presented at a special session at the annual meeting.  The recipient must be an ESS member at the time the award is presented and is expected to be at the meeting to receive the award. Eligible students should submit an electronic version of their paper by October 15, 2022, to the Committee Chair. No papers submitted after this date will be accepted.
