Each year at its annual fall conference PCPA honors a Pennsylvania graduate student with recognition and a monetary award for writing about our profession. The Grady and Mary Roberts Graduate Student Writing Award has a long-standing history in PCPA. Dr. Grady H. Roberts Jr., Associate Dean Emeritus of the University of Pittsburgh is a past president of PCPA and established the award in honor of his parents and their investment in higher education.

Both Master's and Doctoral students are encouraged to submit an article or a paper on a major issue facing our profession. Anyone who has been enrolled as a graduate student during the 2014-2015 academic year is eligible to participate. To be considered for the award, submit evidence of enrollment, the article or paper, and the attached application to me at the address listed below, postmarked by September 15, 2015.

Eligibility requirements for submission include:

Students must be:
* Enrolled in a graduate degree program for one or more semesters during the 2014-2015 school year. Verification is required.
* A current member of PCPA.
* Planning to attend the annual PCPA fall conference.

All students are encouraged to submit an entry for this award, which might be made easy by simply revising work already written for a class. Attached please find the application and additional information about the award. Should you have further questions, don't hesitate to contact me at the email address listed below.
