—NCTE Diversity Statement
The following awards grew out of recommendations made by the Task Force to Advance and Support Members of Color in 2007.
The NCTE Research Foundation Cultivating New Voices program is designed to provide support, mentoring, and networking opportunities for early career scholars of color.
This award is given to an NCTE member of color who has made a significant contribution to NCTE and the development of our professional community.
This award provides early career teachers of color a national forum at the NCTE Annual Convention for professional collaboration and development as they build accomplished teaching careers as active NCTE members. All award recipients must be an NCTE member at the time the award is accepted.
