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: 30 August 2022
Final Deadline: 30 December 2022

In Their Words

It was a wonderful opportunity to network with the scholars in your field and see how they are doing in other parts of the world. I made connections with some very interesting people who may be helpful to collaborate in research projects in the future.

Nadeem Saqlain, 2017 Awardee

I really appreciate having the possibility to chat with and hear all these wonderful people. This is not a vertical dynamic, we all were treated the same and that made possible for us students to talk with amazing academics and to have their comments on our work.

Silvia Agreda, 2014 Awardee

This conference experience will aid me in my future because it reminded me of the importance of learning from colleagues and building upon our strengths. I feel more confident that I can communicate effectively with fellow scholars from around the world.
