Janet A. Harkness Student Paper Award
Announcement for the Janet A. Harkness Student Paper Award
WAPOR and AAPOR will award the first annual Janet A. Harkness Student Paper Award in 2013. This award is given in memory of Dr. Harkness, internationally recognized for her contributions to cross-cultural survey methodology, who passed away earlier this year. The award is open both to current students (graduate or undergraduate) and to those who graduate during calendar year 2012. The award is the first ever joint WAPOR/AAPOR award, and the details for the award are available on both the WAPOR and AAPOR websites.
We encourage you or your organization to make a contribution to the Janet A. Harkness Student Paper Award Fund. Your entire contribution will be dedicated to the award fund and to recognizing emerging young scholars in the study of multi-national/multi-cultural/multi-lingual survey research (aka 3M survey research) through support of the winner’s participation in the WAPOR/AAPOR Conference and a cash prize. WAPOR will provide the support associated with administering the award.
