Graduate Student Paper Prize


The Graduate Student Paper Prize is awarded annually for the best paper read at the annual conference by a graduate student. The prize award consists of $500 and a citation read at the subsequent annual conference and posted on this website.


All students currently enrolled in graduate programs who read papers at the annual conference and have not yet received their PhD are eligible to submit their paper for consideration. Papers should be submitted substantially as read in content and length (with only minor corrections permitted) and must include footnotes or endnotes. Papers must be submitted in .pdf format to the nomination form within two weeks of the end of the conference. The papers will be judged by a committee ordinarily comprising the last three NACBS past presidents.
