OUTSTANDING DISSERTATION AWARD

TABE 2021 THEME: Rompiendo Barreras: Reaching New Heights Together!

 

Description of the Award: This award honors a doctoral graduate student whose completed dissertation makes a significant contribution to research related to bilingual education.


Rationale for Establishing the Award: The purpose of this award is to encourage and reward doctoral graduate students doing outstanding dissertation research in the area of bilingual education.

Eligibility Criteria: Nominations will be accepted on behalf of an individual who makes a significant contribution in the area of bilingual education and who has completed and defended a dissertation accepted by the Graduate School of the nominee’s university, and has been conferred a doctoral degree within the 2-year period preceding receipt of the award. Eligibility criteria includes:

  • The dissertation must have been completed within the past two academic years (2019-2020 or 2020-2021).
  • The nominee is a member of TABE
  • Self-nominations will be accepted
  • The nominee has not previously entered the competition.
  • The nominee is not a member of the TABE board.

Review/Selection Process: Each submitted nomination will first be assessed and scored by the Award Committee solely based on the dissertation summary (manuscript) and references using evaluation criteria (see attached). The full files of the three nominations with the highest review scores, will then be examined and read by the Award Committee. The Committee will review the scores, the reviewer comments, and the dissertation committee chair letters, and will rank order the proposals (1 being first choice, 2 being second choice, etc.). The Committee chair(s) will tabulate the ranks from the committee members; the winner will be the nomination with the highest total score.


 

Selection Criteria: See review criteria and rating scale below.


 

Form of Announcement of Award Winner: The award winner will initially be notified via e-mail. The winner will submit her/his pre-recorded acceptance speech no later than October 12, 2021, and the video will be presented at the TABE 2021 Hybrid conference via Zoom on Saturday, October 23, 2021.

Frequency of Conferral of the Award: TABE will pilot this award during the 2020 conference and may adopt it on an annual basis contingent on outcome. If the committee determines that no high quality nominations were received, no award will be conferred that year.
