Taylor and Francis, the publisher of our journal, supplied SSSR with financial means to be used for “scholarship” purposes which lead to the foundation of the SSSR Taylor & Francis Award.
The SSSR Taylor & Francis Award is an award given to promising young investigators that can be used to cover registration fees for the conference and for related conference expenses. Applicants must have a paper accepted at the SSSR conference and must attend the conference. Applicants may be either students in PhD programs or those who already have PhDs. Preference will be given to those who are attending the SSSR conference for the first time, those who are currently in PhD programs or who have recently received their PhDs, and those who have documented final need. Each year, 4 awards of $500 each will be given to cover registration fees for the conference; the balance may be used for other conference-related expenses. Applicants must complete the Word doc application submit the following materials to the chair of the Awards Committee, Maureen Lovett (firstname.lastname@example.org) by April 15, 2020:
1. Application (please download Word doc application, fill in, and send as a PDF)
2. Vita in English (PDF format)
3. Letter of support from someone who can speak to your suitability for this award, such as a colleague or your department chair (PDF format)
