At the July 2019 conference held in Accra, the GSA instituted a prize for the Best Paper by an Emerging Scholar Presented at the GSA Triennial Conference. The prize is meant to recognize, encourage and support scholarship by younger researchers. The selected paper will be eligible for consideration for review and publication in Ghana Studies, a process through which the award winner will be mentored by senior scholars.
Eligibility: Any sole-authored paper (of not more than 8,000 words) accepted for and presented at the GSA conference by a graduate student, a post-doctoral researcher, or early career scholar within three years of the award of a doctorate degree.
Deadline: 20 October 2019
Announcement: The prize will be publicly announced at the GSA Business Meeting during the ASA Annual Meeting in Boston in November 2019.
