ASA continues to accept submissions for its Graduate Student Research Award. The deadline for this award submission has been extended an additional two weeks, through Tuesday, October 15. To be considered, papers should be submitted through our website, http://www.asaging.org/graduate-student-award. Your ASA website username and password are also located at the bottom of this message.
The Graduate Student Research Award is given to spur academic and clinical interest in the field of aging, and rewards the best unpublished graduate research paper on a completed project relevant to aging and applicable to practice. Membership in ASA is not a requirement, but is a consideration. Applicants must be enrolled in a graduate-degree program or have completed their studies less than one year before submission, and be sponsored by a faculty member.
The winner will receive an opportunity to present their paper during a poster session at the Aging in America Conference, recognition by peers, a complimentary one-year student ASA membership (if not already a member) and one complimentary conference registration.
Harvey Weissman, 2nd year clinical student and SAAS Member was recently awarded a 2013 Diana List Cullen Memorial First Year MSW Student Writing Scholarship, which is sponsored by the Metropolitan Chapter of the New York State Society for Clinical Social Work. The award recognizes MSW students who have shown academic excellence in a clinical paper that they have written in their first year of graduate school. Scholarship recipients also receive a one year membership in the New York State Society for Clinical Social Work. NYSSCSW is a professional organization whose mission is to maintain standards of clinical practice and to provide support and promote training of clinical social workers. The Society also has a mentorship program for students and recent graduates, which meets monthly and guides new students into the social work profession.
