sdpcentennialpin

Please distribute to your student chapter members.

Call for Student Papers
for Sigma Delta Pi’s 8th Annual “Best Practices”  Session
to be held as part of our closing centennial festivities (1919-2019)
at the 102st  Conference of the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese
San Juan, Puerto Rico
July 9-12, 2020

Student Members of active Sigma Delta Pi chapters are invited to submit a proposal for a 15-minute presentation on your chapter’s “best practices” that focuses on Sigma Delta Pi activities at your local institution.  We strongly encourage proposals from current student members who are actively involved in initiating, organizing, executing and/or participating in Sigma Delta Pi activities at their institutions.  Members who have already graduated at the time of application may not apply.

By October 1, 2019, please e-mail the following to Sigma Delta Pi’s Executive Director (delmastromp@cofc.edu): 

1) your full name
2) name of your Sigma Delta Pi chapter and college/university
3) name of your chapter adviser
4) title of your proposed presentation
5) summary of your proposed presentation (no longer than 150 words)

3-4 papers will be selected from the submissions received, and the student presenters will be notified in early December 2019. 

A student whose paper is selected for presentation will receive a $300 travel stipend plus paid conference registration courtesy of Sigma Delta Pi and a complimentary awards banquet ticket and student membership in AATSP courtesy of the AATSP (American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese).  However, the same student is expected to secure travel-related funding for all remaining expenses through his/her college/university, either via the academic departments, the dean’s or provost’s office, the office of student activities, or other institutional sources.   Colleges/universities often provide funding for students presenting at conferences.  Your chapter adviser can assist you with exploring these funding options.  Sigma Delta Pi is unable to provide monetary support beyond the $300 travel stipend and conference registration per selected student. 

For information on the AATSP conference in July 2020, please visit the website: www.aatsp.org. 

Any questions should be directed to the Executive Director: delmastromp@cofc.edu
