The next award will be presented at the 2020 meeting of the History of Education Society. The prize carries an award of $1,000 for the winner. Self-nominations are welcome, as are nominations submitted by dissertation advisors and committee members. Qualified applicants must have completed the dissertation and graduated during the calendar year 2019. The deadline for entries is May 15, 2020.
