EMERGING SCHOLAR AWARD
During the European Urban Research Association annual conference, an award is given to an emerging scholar whose work exemplifies outstanding scholarship in urban affairs. The recipient receives a 1.000€ honorarium. The honorarium is a travel grant that will allow the winner to participate at the next EURA or Urban Affairs Association conference. The award winner is usually announced at the conference.
Participants of the conference pursuing doctoral research, regardless of academic discipline, are eligible to apply. Applicants must have an approved dissertation proposal. The candidate is not required to be an EURA member. Candidates must have an accepted proposal in one of the conference tracks and have to submit a full paper at least 6 weeks befor the conference. The paper must show that it is part of a PhD work.
Track chairs of the conference will nominate a limited number of excellent papers. The final decision will be made by a scientific committee/jury composed of members of the EURA Governing Board and based on the conference chairs’ recommendation.
In addition to the grant, the author might be invited to publish his paper in EURA Urban Research & Practice journal.
