If there are multiple submitters on a proposal, all authors must be current CSCA members. Proposals are evaluated by a selection committee of scholars representing diverse interests in communication and various methods of inquiry. The recipient is expected to provide a presentation of the research project in a special panel at the CSCA convention the year following the award presentation.
To be considered for the Federation Prize, applicants must submit a proposal. The proposal must include the following items:

The recipient of the Federation Prize is recognized at the Hall of Fame Awards Luncheon and Business Meeting. It is expected that a representative for the winning proposal attend the event to collect the prize.
