APSA ANZSOG Policy Studies Prize

The ANZSOG Policy Studies Prize is awarded annually.  

Nominations are now sought for the 2019 ANZSOG (Australia and New Zealand School of Government) Policy Studies Prize, to be awarded at the 2019 Australian Political Studies Association (APSA) conference, hosted by Flinders University.

Conditions of entry: 

  1. The award is for the best peer reviewed article, with a Policy Studies (public policy, social policy, public management, governance) focus, accepted by a journal in the previous calendar year (July 25, 2018  to July 25, 2019).

  2. To be eligible for the prize you must be a postgraduate or early career researcher (within their first five years postdoc, however, we are happy to accommodate significant career interruptions). You must also be working or studying at an Australian university (or working outside the higher education sector for those who are between academic appointments).

Submission Guidelines:

  • A copy of the article, along with a 100 word statement about the reason for the nomination, should be sent to the Chair of the APSA Policy Studies Research Group, Siobhan O’Sullivan, at siobhan.osullivan@unsw.edu.au by 5pm on Friday September 13, 2019.

The prize: 

  • The prize will be awarded at the 2019 APSA conference awards ceremony, normally associated with the conference dinner.

  • The successful nominee will receive a cash prize of $1,000. That prize is made possible by generous support from ANZSOG. ANZSOG is owned by and works for the governments of Australia and New Zealand to lift the quality of public sector leadership.
