Nicolas C. Mullins Award: 4S Student Essay Competition

*Nicholas C. Mullins Award***

*Student Essay Competition***

*Deadline for Submission: August 1, 2012***

The Nicholas C. Mullins Award is awarded each year by the Society for
Social Studies of Science (4S) for an outstanding piece of scholarship by a
graduate student in the field of Science and Technology Studies. The prize
consists of a check for US $1,000 and a plaque.

Only currently enrolled graduate students are eligible to submit a paper
for the 4S Mullins competition. If receipt of PhD (or other terminal
graduate degree) is held by the submission deadline, those degree
recipients are not eligible for the competition.

The competition is for graduate student papers in the field of science and
technology studies, including unpublished papers, published articles, and
dissertation chapters. Dissertation chapters should be adapted so as to
make them “stand-alone.” The work may not be older than two years at the
time of submission. A graduate student can only make one submission a year.
A paper that is coauthored by a faculty member is not considered a graduate
student paper. However, a paper coauthored by current graduate students
only (with no faculty authors) is eligible.

The intended readership for the papers is a general STS audience. All
papers must be submitted in English. The paper should not exceed 10,000
words, including title, notes, and references. Papers longer than the limit
will be disqualified.

The deadline for submission is August 1, 2012. Papers submitted after this
date will not be considered for this year’s competition, and must be
resubmitted the following year. Submissions must observe the following

– The paper must be submitted electronically, as an attachment to an
email message, in MS Word or PDF format.

  2. What you said made a bunch of sense. But, think about this,
    what if you composed a catchier title? I ain’t saying
    your information isn’t solid., but what if you added something that grabbed a person’s
    attention? I mean Nicolas C. Mullins Award: 4S Student Essay Competition | HSS Graduate and Early Career Caucus is a little vanilla.
    You could glance at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they write post titles to grab
    viewers interested. You might try adding a video or a related picture
    or two to grab people interested about everything’ve got to
    say. Just my opinion, it would make your posts a little livelier.

  3. Its such as you learn my thoughts! You appear to know a lot approximately
