The Sociological Association of Ireland’s postgraduate body holds the future academics and sociological minds of Ireland’s future. Our mission is to:
It’s hard enough trying to make a name for yourself in the competitive world of academia today, and while we can’t cure that, we can give you a platorm where you can introduce yourself and find like-minded young academics with whom to network and connect.
The SAI is delighted to launch the Postgraduate Student Prize. We warmly invite all SAI Postgraduate Members to submit an entry, to be in with a chance to have the excellence of your scholarship and contribution to your community and wider society recognised. The competition can be entered by submitting a short portfolio outlining the recent contributions you have made in your PhD journey.
The portfolio consists of four sections, which give participants a chance to describe their contribution to the field of sociology and their social impact:
The prizes are as follows:
First prize: Support with the publication of 1 academic article and Mentorship
Second prize: Stipend for joining 1 academic conference, to a value of €300
Third prize: Book voucher worth €150
The winners will be announced at the annual SAI conference later this year. Send your submission to email@example.com with the subject ‘Postgraduate Prize‘.
The annual postgraduate conference provides a forum for student researchers to present their work to academic peers and receive feedback, engage in critical discussions with other postgrads and academics, develop research and presentation skills, and help to build a broad and inclusive community of early career academics in Ireland and farther afield. We invite both presentations and posters.
