In honor of John Karat's contributions to the usable privacy and security community and his dedication to mentoring students, SOUPS has instituted the John Karat Usable Privacy and Security Student Research Award.
The Karat Student Award will be presented to a graduate student based on:
- Their research in usable privacy and security
- Their efforts to mentor others
- Their community service for usable privacy and security (e.g., volunteer activities in conferences)
The winner of the award will be announced at the SOUPS conference.
To be eligible, the student must have graduated no earlier than 18 months prior to the conference. Thus for the 2018 award, current graduate students and those who have graduated no earlier than January 2017 are eligible.

Nominees will be notified of the outcome on Wednesday, June 27, 2018.
