Young Scholars Awards Application will be available Fall 2023

Attention SPS Student Members! The SPS Young Scholars’ Award provides scholarship funds to the winner of each year’s “Best Student Research Paper.” The award winner must qualify according to the instructions.

The winner will be noted in the current SPS program, inviting all members to hear the student’s presentation of the award-winning paper, and introduced at the annual meeting banquet. Funds awarded will be based on current funds available in the Young Scholars SPS account. Registrants attending each year’s annual meeting have opportunity to give to the Young Scholars’ Fund and can also make donations throughout the year.

The award is for a paper proposed, accepted, and selected for the upcoming SPS yearly meeting. It is provided for Master's level Students, not PhD candidates. Please notify the interest group leader of your interest in the award, so that they may offer your paper to the Chair of the SPS Membership Committee.


The Student Caucus will sometimes hold a luncheon or a reception at the yearly meeting.
