The Transnational Asia/Pacific Section of the American Folklore Society is proud to present the Saboohi I. Khan Award for Student Scholarship in Asian and Asian American Folklore.

The award aims to mentor graduate and undergraduate students and to foster and encourage scholarly research and publication on Asian and/or Asian American folklore and folklife. The $500 prize winner will be announced at the AFS annual meeting for the best student paper that contributes to Asian and/or Asian American folklore studies through research and analysis. The award recipient will be expected to present his/her paper at the Section meeting during the AFS annual conference in October.

The co-conveners of the Transnational Asia/Pacific Section will form the selection committee, together with three additional members, including Dr. Fariha Khan, who sponsors this award. At the time of submission, the applicant must be a registered full-time graduate or undergraduate student. He or she may be enrolled in any discipline in any U.S. or international academic institution. The work must show compelling prospects for the publication of his or her scholarly work and demonstrate a dedication to research and/or teaching folklore studies.

All applications must include a one-page cover letter describing the applicant's background and current activities, indicating why the applicant deserves consideration for this award; a one-page CV; a research paper, double-spaced, 2500 - 5000 words long; and one letter of recommendation from an academic institution or equivalent.
