DSA unveils a new dissertation prize for PhD students
This year, the DSA unveils a new dissertation prize for PhD students working in the field of international development, development studies and development economics. This will be an annual prize awarded to the best PhD dissertation in these fields of studies from across current DSA institutional members.
The winner will be invited to present their research at the DSA annual conference held in June/ July each year.
For the 2022 prize, all Development Studies and Economics departments in the UK that are institutional members of the DSA are invited to submit one PhD dissertation each for consideration. Nominations will be accepted between 17th January and 1st March 2022. We ask all the Heads of Centres of DSA affiliated institutions in the UK to nominate the highest scoring/ most promising PhD dissertation awarded on their “international development” or related subject programmes in 2021. The nominations will be evaluated by an academic panel from the DSA. Decisions will be made by end April 2022 and the winner and their department notified.
Send nominations to membershipadmin(AT)devstud.org.uk stating the title of the dissertation and the student name.
