National Student Paper Competition
Are you working on important Canadian policy issues? If yes, participate in National Student Paper Competition! Online applications are open from November 1, 2022, to January 31, 2023.
The NSPC is an annual competition hosted by the Canada School of Public Service (an agency of the Government of Canada). The competition aims to identify and amplify important policy work coming out of Canadian graduate programs. The initiative gives graduate students the opportunity to connect with senior executives, expand their networks, nurture their leadership skills, and foster employment opportunities with the federal public service.
The Grand Prize winner(s) of the competition will receive the following:
- A 4-month internship with the Canadian federal public service (staffing mechanism depends on individual situation)
- Invitations to attend or present at academic and governmental conferences and panels
The winner and the top five finalists will:
- receive a certificate of achievement signed by the President of the Canada School of Public Service
- have their paper posted on the Canadian Association of Programs in Public Administration (CAPPA) website in both official languages
