The Georgia Educational Research Association sponsors the Outstanding Student Research Award in conjunction with its annual meeting. The graduate student submitting the winning research paper will be recognized at the GERA Annual Meeting.

You are required to check the option of the Outstanding Student Research Award during the proposal submission process if you want to be considered for this award. Selecting this option will generate an e-mail containing the link for submitting your paper. You will then submit your paper (maximum 2500 words, excluding title page, references, and appendices) via Digital Commons by the stated due date. Papers that exceed the maximum word count will not be reviewed for the award.

Papers considered for the competition must be submitted by students currently enrolled in a recognized graduate degree program. Papers submitted by recent graduates (last year) will also be considered providing that the research upon which the paper is based was completed before graduation. Papers having more than one author will be considered; however, each author must be a student (e.g., a faculty member may not be one of the authors).

Note: If there are multiple authors, the monetary award will be divided and only one plaque will be given.

PLEASE NOTE: Students submitting papers must register for and present at the Meeting.

Individuals may be the first author on only one paper being considered for this award.

Criteria for selecting a winning paper will be the same as used by reviewers of various scholarly journals publishing articles related to educational research. A wide variety of topics and research methods pertaining to educational research are appropriate for this competition.
