This is a friendly reminder about two upcoming deadlines for graduate students:
1) Submissions for the Grad Student Essay Prize are due this Saturday, May 4th. If you are a current grad student member of ACCUTE and have had a paper accepted for presentation at ACCUTE this year, please submit that paper for this competition–first prize is $300! Essays will be judged by three faculty members selected by the ACCUTE Board. The winner will be announced at the ACCUTE Celebration of Research, and will have their name and paper featured on the ACCUTE website, in the newsletter, and on social media. To submit, please send a Word file of your paper (4000 words with a .doc or .docx extension) to email@example.com. Please see our website for more details (https://accute.ca/gradstudentprize/), or get in touch by email.
2. Grad slides for the Celebration of Research are due by Wednesday, May 15th. All graduate students who are ACCUTE members–whether attending the conference or not–can submit one PowerPoint slide about their research, which will be featured in a slideshow at the Celebration of Research on June 3rd. It’s a great way to get your research ideas and name out there! I’ll attach a sample slide to give you ideas of what to include. Please send questions and submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
