Sarah Meek Page, a distinguished December 1994 graduate of the Graduate School of International Policy Studies, died in an automobile accident on October 26, 2006 in South Africa.  She is memorialized on the MIIS campus with a bench in front of the Kade Building.  In order to honor Sarah’s work and promote research in Africa, her family has established an annual prize for student research in Africa.  Students may submit a research paper, program evaluation, professional experience, or other type of work which succinctly describes a specific social condition and a feasible solution in the form of policies and/or programs.  It should be fully documented and between 20-30 pages, 1.5 spacing in Word.

Papers should be submitted to and delivered hard copy to McGowen 200E between April 1st and August 25th, 2010.  The award will be announced September 15, 2010.  The winner of the best paper will receive $1,000 USD.
