Emerging Scholar Awards


Each year a small number of Emerging Scholar Awards are given to outstanding early-career scholars or graduate students. The Award offers complimentary registration, Network Membership, and CGScholar Credit. It provides a robust professional development opportunity for early career academics to meet experts in the field, interact with colleagues from other parts of the world, and create networks and lasting connections. In our Blended Model, we have two kinds of Emerging Scholars -- In-Person Blended and Online Only. Across all formats, Emerging Scholars play a critical role in the conference by leading discussions and chairing parallel sessions and are offered a publication pathway for their research. This way, we can provide maximum exposure for this selected group of researchers.

Early Deadline: 29 November 2021

"From this Graduate Scholar experience I now feel confident to cope in a true leader role. This will help me in my aspirations of being a teacher."

"Attending an international conference has made me more aware that educational research is being conducted worldwide and that we have colleagues from many different countries and universities with whom we can confer and collaborate."
