In 2020 we launched the Rising Star Award as part of our 50th Anniversary celebrations. Nurturing and supporting the careers of students and early career researchers has been a key part of the mission of the ECPR since its creation, so this new award is particularly apt.
The Rising Star Award aims to recognise the achievements of an outstanding PhD student or early career researcher in their scholarly life so far and provide them with the opportunity to develop their network and skills even further with ECPR support.
The award will be presented annually to an individual considered to have a particularly promising future in the field of politics and international relations. The winner, who must work or study at an ECPR member institution, will enjoy a year’s free access to a selection of our events.
