STUDENT PAPER COMPETITION
The annual CAPS Student Paper Competition recognizes graduate and undergraduate students for excellence in Christian psychological research and scholarship. Three prizes for student papers are presented at the annual conference. The prizes consist of: graduated cash awards for 1st ($250), 2nd ($150), and 3rd ($100) places. All 3 winners shall receive complimentary one-year student memberships to CAPS and a certificate suitable for framing.
Please note the following guidelines: Submitters shall be matriculated full-time students in either undergraduate or graduate programs at the time of writing the paper. Papers should clearly state on the title page only whether the student is submitting as an undergraduate or graduate student, and only one paper per student may be submitted to a competition.
