Undergraduate Student Paper Awards

The MIPSA Undergraduate Paper Award is presented annually to the author/s of the best undergraduate paper submitted for consideration.

Eligible papers are those written to meet the requirements of an undergraduate political science course taught in the state of Michigan during the previous academic year. Honors theses revised under the auspices of faculty members are not eligible for the award. Papers must be nominated by the instructor of the course.

The deadline for submission is August 15.

Two awards are given, one for community college students and one for four-year college or university students. Only students from current member institutions are eligible for these awards.

Electronic submissions (preferred) and inquiries should be sent to Dr. John Clark: john.clark@wmich.edu. Hard copy papers should be submitted to Dr. John Clark, Department of Political Science, Western Michigan University, 1903 W. Michigan Avenue, Kalamazoo, MI 49008-5346.
