Research paper competition will net winners $750 and $1,000 awards

Students: Have you just completed a research paper? Faculty: Have you just read an outstanding research paper? Why not submit it to The ICPSR Research Paper Competition?

ICPSR invites submissions for our 2013 Research Paper Competition from undergraduates and master’s students at member institutions. The purpose is to highlight exemplary research papers based on quantitative analysis. We are holding three contests this year:

1. The ICPSR Research Paper Competition, for analyses on any topic using data from the ICPSR general archive or thematic collections.
2. The IFSS Research Paper Competition, for analyses on any topic using data from the integrated fertility survey series.
3. The RCMD Research Paper Competition, for analyses on issues relating to minorities in the United States, including immigrants, using data from the Resource Center for Minority Data.

All competitions are open to students currently pursuing or who recently received undergraduate or master’s degrees.  The awards are $1,000 for first place and $750 for second place in each category.  More information is found here: http://www.icpsr.umich.edu/icpsrweb/content/ICPSR/prize/index.html

The deadline is Jan. 31.
