CALL FOR NOMINATIONS: DISSERTATION AWARD IN RURAL EDUCATION
Eligibility: Doctoral dissertations completed between September 1, 2008 and August 31, 2010.
The awards committee will accept nominations from any research tradition in education, sociology, history, and other fields, and in which the rural context is prominent in the conception, research design, execution, conclusions, and recommendations (if any). Dissertations in which the word rural is uncommon are not likely to qualify to be judged. Authors are encouraged to nominate their own works; nomination by another scholar is unnecessary and it is not considered a substantive advantage.
The nomination must include the dissertation author’s current contact information (postal address, phone, email address, current work affiliation, and webpage if any) and the nominee's contact information (if not a self-nomination). In addition, the nomination must provide the name of institution, the relevant academic department, and exact date of the dissertation defense at which the study was accepted.
Please send nominations, an unbound copy of the complete dissertation (title page, text, abstract, reference list) and an electronic version on a CD-ROM by January 15, 2011 to the Award Committee Chair. Materials submitted become the property of the awards committee and cannot be returned to the author or nominator.
Please share this announcement with your colleagues and students!
