In our commitment to advancing graduate students in the field, ATTW is pleased to announce the 2017 ATTW Graduate Research Award. This award’s purpose is to support and advance the research of graduate students in the latter stages of their PhD programs (preference will be given to those students working on their dissertations).
Up to three awardees will receive a monetary amount ($500.00) to be used for research expenses and/or to help defray the costs of attending the annual ATTW conference. In addition, award recipients will be featured in a work-in-progress panel presentation at the annual conference in Portland, Oregon in 2017, and the conference registration fee will be waived.
At this time, we are soliciting application materials from graduate students whose research is in technical and professional communication. Interested students should send (as one *.pdf file):
- a prospectus that describes their current research and its contribution to the field of technical and professional communication; the prospectus should also address the applicants’ plans for future work. (Please limit to 3-4 pages).
- a description of the ways in which the award money will be used to support the research
- a current CV
- a letter of support from the student’s advisor that confirms the student’s status as a graduate student and details the advisor’s support for the student’s application
Awards will be given to those with clearly defined research projects that contribute to the field of technical and professional communication.
