Janet A. Harkness Student Paper Award
Announcement for the Janet A. Harkness Student Paper Award
WAPOR and AAPOR request submissions for the Janet A. Harkness Student Paper Award to be considered for the award as part of the program for the joint annual conference in 2016. This award is given in memory of Dr. Janet Harkness, internationally recognized for her contributions to cross-cultural survey methodology, who passed away in 2012. The award is open both to current students (graduate or undergraduate) and to those who graduated during calendar year 2015. 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 Conference and a cash prize. WAPOR will provide the support associated with administering the award.
