Emerging Scholar Awards

Each year a small number of Emerging Scholar Awards are given to outstanding early-career scholars or graduate students. The Award offers complimentary registration, Network Membership, and CGScholar Credit. It provides a robust professional development opportunity for early career academics to meet experts in the field, interact with colleagues from other parts of the world, and create networks and lasting connections. In our Blended Model, we have two kinds of Emerging Scholars -- In-Person Blended and Online Only. Across all formats, Emerging Scholars play a critical role in the conference by leading discussions and chairing parallel sessions and are offered a publication pathway for their research. This way, we can provide maximum exposure for this selected group of researchers.

Early Deadline: 7 December 2021
Final Deadline: 7 April 2022

In Their Words

I talked to many different people, I learned a lot, I saw a myriad of subjects, and because I was a graduate scholar, I was given the opportunity to understand and see how the conference worked."

Raquel Amin, 2015 Awardee

One of the most important skills I acquired as a Graduate Scholar was networking with fellow participants at the conference. My position gave me the opportunity to talk with many delegates, with whom I might not have communicated if I had not chaired their panels."

Lieselot Verdonck, 2014 Awardee

I have to thank the lovely organisers for giving me the privilege position. As an early career academic, the award is timely for my professional development."
