A brief history

The European Urban Research Association gives a young scholar award for emerging scholars whose work exemplifies outstanding scholarship in urban affairs. The recipient receives a 1.000 Euro honorarium. The honorarium is a travel grant that will allow the winner to participate at the next EURA or UAA conference. The award winner will be presented at the current 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 bevor 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 decision will be made by a jury composed of members of the governing board of EURA and the local organizing team.
