The nomination process for the PJSA Student Awards is now open!
Each year PJSA recognizes one outstanding undergraduate thesis and one outstanding graduate thesis/dissertation completed during the 2018-2019 academic year (between June 2018 to May 2019) in the fields of peace and conflict or justice studies with the following awards:
- Best Dissertation/Graduate Thesis of the Year Award

Awardees are honored at PJSA’s award banquet during the annual PJSA conference (October 4-6, 2019) and receive a 2 year membership to PJSA plus a $300 travel stipend and waived registration fee to attend the conference!
