CPD Announces New Prize for Best Student Paper in Public Diplomacy
The USC Center on Public Diplomacy is proud to announce the launch of its annual CPD Prize for Best Student Paper in Public Diplomacy.
Intended to recognize and publicize an outstanding contribution to the field by a graduate student in USC's Master of Public Diplomacy Program (MPD), the prize will be awarded by the Center to an MPD student whose written work relates manifestly to one or more of the Center's three priority areas in public diplomacy: scholarly research, policy analysis, and professional training.
"The Center is always keen to build on its mutually beneficial linkage with the Master's program here at USC," said Geoffrey Wiseman, Director of the Center. "Following the launch earlier this year of the student-run magazine, Public Diplomacy (PD), this prize represents another excellent opportunity to showcase the incredible work that these talented students are producing."
Professors teaching in the pioneering degree program will submit their nominated papers to the Center by the end of this semester. Essays will be reviewed and judged by a committee of CPD Fellows. The recipient of the 2009 prize will be announced in June and the paper will be published on the CPD website.
