A small number of Emerging Scholar Awards are given to outstanding graduate students and emerging scholars who have an active research interest in the conference themes. The Award provides a strong professional development opportunity for early career academics—meeting experts in the field, interacting with colleagues from other parts of the world, and creating networks and lasting connections. Awardees are invited to attend the conference to present their work and play a critical organizational role in the conference by leading discussions, chairing parallel sessions, and providing assistance in session rooms.
Applications are open to those pursuing research degrees, post- and graduate students, as well as early career faculty.

I enjoyed moderating sessions as I've only done it a couple of times prior to this conference. Moderating gave me an opportunity to be in a more involved role in the conference and now my confidence as a new scholar has grown."
This experience has certainly made me more confident as a scholar and as a chair of conference sessions! I hope that the contacts I established will lead to some fruitful scholarly collaborations in the future."
