IARSLCE is pleased to announce that nominations and applications are now being accepted for the 2016 recognitions and graduate student scholarships. We also invite members to participate in the review process that determines recipients. Additional details may be found below and on our Awards Webpage.

The purpose of our recognition is to encourage, catalyze, support, share, and leverage high quality research. “IARSLCE Recognition of Exemplary Contribution through Research on Service-Learning and Community Engagement” is categorized into 3 types:  Dissertation, Early Career, and Distinguished Career. Recognitions also include ten graduate student scholarships.

Nominations for 2016 recognitions and applications for graduate student scholarships are due by May 24, 2016 and should be submitted electronically to info@researchslce.org; self-nominations are welcome. All nominees and scholarship applicants will be notified of their status in July. All nominees and recipients or the four categories of recognitions will be invited to share about their work at the annual conference (September 26-28, 2016 in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA). For details about the conference please visit our Conference Webpage.

The Distinguished Career Recognition  acknowledges and celebrates intellectual leadership through a body of work that has broad and deep impact on service-learning and community engagement — including the study of it, the practice of it, and the curriculum and systems within which it is undertaken.

The Early Career Recognition acknowledges and celebrates intellectual leadership through an emerging body of work that has begun to demonstrate broad and deep impact on service-learning and community engagement — including the study of it, the practice of ti, and the curriculum and/or systems within which it is undertaken.

The Dissertation Recognition acknowledges and celebrates a dissertation that advances research on service-learning and community engagement through rigorous and innovative inquiry and has the potential for impact – including on the study of it, the practice of it, and/or the cultures ans systems within which it is undertaken.

Ten $500 Graduate Student Scholarships are provided by the Association to support graduate school participation in the 2016 IARSLCE Conference in New Orleans, LA. Scholarships recipients fall into two categories:  (a) early graduate students and (b) advanced graduate students. A total of ten scholarships will be awarded across the two categories. Within each category, at least one scholarship will be awarded to an international graduate based outside the US.
