The Transportation Planning Division of the
American Planning Association is looking for outstanding student papers
on current transportation planning or policy issues. Two awards will
be presented: one for the best master's student paper with a $600 prize
and another for the best undergraduate paper with a $400 prize. Papers
must have been originally written by a single author for a class in an
accredited planning program in a US college or university during calendar
years 2004 and 2005. Master's theses, terminal professional reports,
and student group projects are not eligible. A paper may be submitted
only once; papers may not be revised and resubmitted a second time. Papers
by multiple authors will not be accepted.
The program chair, a faculty member, or the AICP liaison may nominate a
paper by indicating when and for what course the paper was prepared; students
may not nominate their own paper. Doctoral students are not eligible for
this award. Each accredited program may submit only two master's
and two undergraduate papers.
Papers may be no more than 20 pages long, including references. Table,
maps and other diagrams may supplement the 20 pages of text but not exceed
5 pages. Papers must be double-spaced with margins of at least 1
inch and a font of at least 12 point. Title page should include student
name, address, degree program, date when paper was originally submitted,
and phone number. No name or other form of identification should
be included on the pages with the text of the paper (e.g., a header or
footer should only include the page number and paper title).
The deadline for receipt of the papers is Wednesday, February 1, 2006.
Papers will be accepted via e-mail; .pdf is the preferred format;
please submit the title page separately from the paper. Printed copies
of papers will also be accepted; papers will not be accepted via FAX.
No late papers will be accepted.
