For several years, the ASN Convention has acknowledged excellence in graduate studies research by offering Awards for Best Doctoral Student Papers. The ASN 2015 Doctoral Student Awards were given to:
Doctoral student applicants whose proposals are accepted for the 2016 Convention, who will not have defended their dissertation by 1 November 2015, and whose papers are delivered by the deadline, will automatically be considered for the awards. Each award comes with a certificate and a cash prize.
In 2010 the ASN Convention inaugurated an annual ASN Harriman Book Prize—the Joseph Rothschild Prize in Nationalism and Ethnic Studies. At the 2015 ASN Convention, the prize was awarded to Madeleine Reeves for Border Work: Spatial Lives of the State in Rural Central Asia (Cornell University Press, 2014).
