Emerging Scholars Award

ARNOVA's Emerging Scholars Award is designed to help develop the next generation of scholars, foster dissemination of research into practice, and enhance practitioner involvement in the creation of usable knowledge. The program provides funds to enable students and new scholars (those in their first year of appointment in academic or practice positions) to attend ARNOVA's 47th Annual Conference in Austin, TX.

The committee encourages applications from a wide variety of fields, as well as from women and people of color. Because financial resources for this award are limited, the committee encourages applications from people for whom this award would make a difference. Winners of the 2017 Emerging Scholars Award are NOT eligible to apply for the 2018 Emerging Scholars Award. The 2018 Emerging Scholar Awards Committee will be chaired by an experienced scholar who is a member of ARNOVA. S/he will be joined by others with wide experience in the field.
