Students Awards

Student Paper Award

The AAG-RTS offers a prize to the best student paper(s) presented at the conference. This prize is open to RTS student members at both the Master’s and PhD level. The prize is a cash award of up to $200. We reserve the right to award more than one paper with a prize, and in such a case will split the award.

Eligibility Criteria & Deadlines

To be eligible, you must

  • be enrolled as a graduate student by the AAG’s official abstract submission date
  • register to attend and present at the AAG annual meeting
  • submit a research paper* based on your annual meeting presentation (papers must be submitted by March 26th in order to be eligible for the award)

Members of the AAG-RTS board, assisted by senior scholars attending the Annual Meeting, will review each submission and attend the presentations of the participating students.

*Students are encouraged to submit a single-authored paper. However, we will accept papers co-authored with other students. We cannot accept papers co-authored with non-students (e.g., supervisors or other faculty).

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the AAG-RTS Chairs, Mary Mostafanezhad ( & Elizabeth Vidon (
