Student Paper Competition

The paper competition allows undergraduate and graduate students, either individual or teams, to showcase their original applied and clinical work in a traditional academic forum.  

Papers should be 15-25 pages and should be modelled after academic journal articles with an abstract, introduction/background, methodology, findings, and discussion sections. Papers must be explicitly applied or clinical in nature. The Top 3 papers in each category will receive a $100 prize, a $250 travel allowance to attend the conference in person, waived conference fees and a free annual membership to the AACS. The Top Paper in each category will also receive mentorship to help get the paper published in the Journal and Applied Social Science.
