Annual IPUMS Research Awards open

Dear IPUMS User,

We are proud to announce the opening of the 2023 IPUMS Research Awards. These awards honor outstanding research from 2023 using IPUMS data to advance or deepen our understanding of social and demographic processes and really showcase the power of the IPUMS data collections. Cash prizes are awarded for the best published and the best student work (published or unpublished) in the following categories:

We will also be awarding the IPUMS Excellence in Research Award. This award highlights outstanding research by scholars from groups that have been systemically excluded in research spaces. When submitting a paper for consideration in any of the data collection categories, lead authors who identify as belonging to a systemically excluded group may indicate their interest in being considered for the IPUMS Excellence in Research Award as well. Similar to the awards for specific IPUMS data collections, the IPUMS Excellence in Research Award will be given to one published paper and one student paper (published or unpublished).

The submission deadline for the 2023 awards competition is February 18, 2024.

Use it for good!
The IPUMS Team
