CALL FOR ABSTRACTS: ThinkRace Extended Abstract Competition
Due: May 5, 2019 to Michael Schmidt
We write to invite you to submit abstracts to our first ever ThinkRace Extended Abstract Competition where working group members working in the areas of race and ethnicity can submit extended abstracts of a maximum of three pages that outline developing projects or research proposals. Based on a pre-structured rubric and blind review, three abstracts will be chosen to receive an award towards fieldwork or conference presentations.
First place will receive $600, second place $500, and third place $400.
To participate please submit your abstracts by e-mail to Michael Schmidt by 05/08/2019. Your identifying information will then be removed and sent along to the student coordinators. Coordinators will narrow down finalists and send them along to a panel of faculty members who will vote on the winners. Winners will be asked to present their research at the first event of the Fall 2019 semester. Thank you and good luck!
