Call for Entries: AACTE Outstanding Dissertation Award

AACTE is now accepting nominations for the 2016 Outstanding Dissertation Award. Applications must be uploaded through our online submission system by August 17.

The AACTE Outstanding Dissertation Award recognizes excellence in doctoral dissertation research (or its equivalent) that contributes to the knowledge base of educator preparation or of teaching and learning with implications for educator preparation. For this award, applicants must submit a 10-page narrative answering a series of questions about the dissertation, along with a letter of support from the dissertation adviser/chair. Dissertations with a completion date between January 2014 and June 2015 are eligible for consideration; see the call for entries for other requirements.

Entries will be reviewed by the AACTE Committee on Research and Dissemination. Applicants will be notified of the committee’s decision in November, and the winner will be recognized during the 2016 Annual Meeting, to be held February 23-25 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The winner also receives $1,000!

We are also soliciting entries for the AACTE Outstanding Book Award, with a nomination deadline of Wednesday, June 17. The call for entries for AACTE’s other 2016 awards will be available later this month. Meanwhile, contact me with any questions about the Writing and Research Awards or Lucy Berrier with any general awards questions.
