These awards are intended to invest in CCCC members by rewarding and supporting: early career researchers; writing faculty/instructors who have not had the opportunity to engage in funded research; and/or writing faculty/instructors who do not have support for research within their institutions. In addition to funding research up to $10,000 per project, the Emergent Researcher Awards also provide research support.
The CCCC Research Initiative invites proposals for research projects that can contribute to or affect discussions about literacy and writing instruction in and out of formal education. This program funds proposals up to $10,000 each.
The CEE Graduate Student Research Award seeks to support graduate student research that contributes to and extends CEE’s efforts to examine important issues in English education. While the parameters of the award are broad, we encourage research that examines current issues in the field and offers implications for multiple audiences. The award provides a maximum of $2,500 to support a specific research project conducted by a graduate student; in addition, $500 is provided to support travel to the NCTE Convention to present that research. Graduate students at the master’s and doctoral level are eligible; all applicants must be members of CEE.
Deadline August 8
