Nancy Karlin Graduate Student Research Awards

For these student awards, the first author on the presentation must be a graduate student, and no faculty authors are allowed. Based on the information provided in the conference submission, student award finalists will be selected. These finalists must give their oral presentation during the special convention sessions set aside for RMPA award finalists in order to be considered for the award. Award winners, based on the quality of their presentations at the conference, will be announced at RMPA’s business meeting, and each winning submission will receive $500. RMPA will award up to 2 of these awards each year. This award is named after long-time RMPA supporter and executive committee member, Nancy J. Karlin, a full professor at the University of Northern Colorado.
