CALL FOR PROPOSALS
The American Association for Budget and Program Analysis (AABPA) invites master’s candidates in public administration, public policy, and other related disciplines to submit proposals for its 5th annual award competition for student research.
AABPA invites students to submit research topics that analyze the current social, economic, and political landscape in order to offer alternatives for change. Students are encouraged to include historical references to the evolution of the budget process, program analysis and performance measures, or fiscal policy when appropriate.
Topics may include, but are not limited to:
Submit a 300-word abstract and a resume or CV to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Friday, May 17. Abstracts should include a title, summary, methodology, results, and conclusions (for research that is already complete).
Proposals will be evaluated by a combined team of practitioners and academics on clarity, research methodology, originality, innovation, and potential for overall contribution to the fields of budgeting and program analysis.
Selected finalists will be invited to present their research at an evening reception, tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, July 9, and during the AABPA Spring Symposium on July 10 (tentative), in Washington, D.C. Presentations must include a poster display and one-page summary document. Guidance for these products will be provided to finalists. A limited number of student travel stipends for the conference are available for finalists. Students will be required to present their research to be considered for an award.
Winners will receive the Marykathryn Kubat Award for Graduate Student Research. Awards include a certificate and $1,000 cash prize.
