The Society for Urban, National and Transnational/Global Anthropology is pleased to announce its undergraduate paper prize competition. We are seeking nominations—by faculty—for student papers that address SUNTA‘s interests, including urban life, space and place, transnational social processes, impacts of globalization, and refugees and immigration. The prize includes a cash award of $150. The winner will be announced at the 2017 AAA meetings in Washington, DC.

Any author who is a current undergraduate or who graduated in the 2017 calendar year is eligible for the competition, as long as the submission was composed while she or he was an undergraduate.

The faculty nomination is sufficient.

The paper’s formatting (e.g., citations, bibliographies etc.) should be consistent throughout. International entries are encouraged, although papers must be in English.
