Research Paper Competition

The January 29, 2016 deadline has passed. Stay tuned for the next submissions deadline. 

The GRCC Social Science Department annually selects a student research paper for special recognition in the form of the Student Research Paper Award.  The purpose of this competition is to promote and reward excellence in student research in the Social Sciences: history, political science, economics, geography, sociology and anthropology. GRCC students who prepare outstanding research papers as part of their work in Social Science courses are encouraged to enter the competition.

First, second, and third-place awards include a certificate of recognition and a cash prize. The award-winning authors will be honored at the college’s Student Leadership Awards Banquet in April, and their papers will be featured on the Social Science Department’s webpage.
