Submitting Entries

Entries will be reviewed by the AACTE Committee on Research and Dissemination. The primary selection criterion is quality of scholarship. Reviewers do not want to receive full dissertations. Instead, AACTE requests a 10-page narrative answering a series of questions about the study, along with a letter of support from the dissertation adviser/chair. Submissions also include a blinded copy of the original abstract, table of contents, and references. See the call for entries (PDF) for more specific submission requirements.

For more information, read the full criteria for the Outstanding Dissertation Award.

All entries must be made through AACTE’s online submissions site.  If you need more information, feel free to contact me at lminor@aacte.org.
