2013 PHIRC Graduate Student Publication Prize in Population Health & Inequities
The PHIRC Graduate Student Publication Prize in Population Health & Inequities has been created to honour scholarly contributions to peer-reviewed journals published by graduate students (Master’s and PhD) who are supervised by PHIRC members.
To be eligible for the PHIRC Graduate Student Publication Prize in Population Health & Inequities, the following eligibility criteria must be met:
• The student must be the first or sole author of the paper;
• At the time of application, the student must have been registered in a Master’s or PhD program at the University of Calgary;
• The paper must be in the area of population health and inequities;
• The student’s supervisor must be a member in good standing of PHIRC;
• The paper must have been published during calendar year 2013 (i.e., final version; not "e-pub prior to print")
To apply, submit your paper in pdf format along with a cover letter that speaks to all of the eligibility criteria above, with particular emphasis on the paper’s relevance to population health and inequities. A key reference is CIHR’s Institute of Population and Public Health (http://www.cihr-irsc.gc.ca/e/13777.html). The cover letter should be co-signed by the student and supervisor.
Each prize will normally be valued at $100, and there will be a limited number of prizes per year. In the event that we receive more eligible submissions than the available prize money, we will introduce an impartial process to distribute the funds.
Submit your application by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, copying your supervisor(s), with “PHIRC publication prize” in the subject line.
Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis, and decisions for the 2013 prize will be announced in January 2014.
