Share |

The Executive Committee of SPR is delighted to announce an international student travel award competition for the 2016 SPR conference in Jerusalem. There are a maximum of 4 awards, with a value of $1,000 (USD) each. These awards are oriented to students from developing countries (according the World Bank - the list of eligible countries is attached). The aim is to empower students who cannot participate in this conference without extra support. These awards are independent from SPR chapter awards.

To be eligible, the student must be:

  2. A student (according to SPR membership status) at the time of the conference,
  3. In good standing with SPR (i.e., SPR membership is current) and
  4. A citizen of a developing country and working in a developing country [list of elegible countries].

Awards will be presented during the 2016 SPR conference, upon verification of paid registration.

Applications should be submitted electronically to, in the order noted below, in one PDF document:

  1. Cover Letter (includes student name, country of origin and work, title of the work)
  2. Summary of the work (one page, single-spaced, exclusive of references, tables, and figures)
  3. Abbreviated curriculum vitae (1 page maximum, focusing on the applicant’s major research activities - presentations, publications, works in progress - within the past 2 years). Students’ CVs should indicate educational status (e.g., master’s student, doctoral candidate).

Applications will be reviewed by an Awards Committee with representation from all SPR chapters.

Application deadline was January 1st, 2016.
