Participation and support for graduate students has been a strong tradition of the Motivation in Education SIG. As such, the SIG sponsors two awards specifically for graduate student members of the SIG.
You qualify for a student travel award if you: (1) are a current graduate student, (2) are a member of the Motivation in Education SIG, (3) have an accepted presentation (of any kind—paper, poster, roundtable) as part of the Motivation in Education SIG program, and (4) are the first-author on that presentation. The amount of the student travel awards for this year has not been determined yet, but recent awards were around $100. We hope to match that amount this year.
To apply for the student travel award, simply send an email to Dr. Ellen Usher (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your name, mailing address, an attached copy of your AERA proposal, and an attached copy of all the reviews you received for your proposal. Award application due date: Friday, February 3, 2017.
The proposals and proposal reviews of Student Travel Award applicants will be reviewed to determine a group of finalists who will be considered for the Paul R. Pintrich Memorial Award. Those finalists will then have their proposals and reviews read by an ad hoc committee of senior SIG members. This committee will select the winner of the 2017 Pintrich Award. All awards will be disbursed during the SIG business meeting, which all are encouraged to attend. Please forward this message to students who may be eligible.
