The award is sponsored by the International Leadership Association (ILA) and the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) to recognize outstanding unpublished papers by undergraduate and graduate students.

Submissions may be either empirically or conceptually based. Multidisciplinary approaches to research are welcomed. The paper should focus on some aspect of leadership or leadership development.  Submissions will be judged by the following criteria:

  1. The degree to which the paper addresses issues and trends that are significant to the study of leadership;
  2. The extent to which the paper shows consideration of the relevant theoretical and empirical literature;
  3. The extent to which the paper makes a conceptual or empirical contribution;
