The American Association of Hispanics in Higher Education (AAHHE) and Educational Testing Service (ETS) are proud to announce the Outstanding Dissertations Competition . AAHHE and ETS recognize the significant need to increase the number of Hispanics receiving doctoral degrees, entering higher education on the tenure track, and eventually serving in faculty leadership and administrative roles.
The first place winner of the Outstanding Dissertations Competition will receive an award in the amount of $1,000. The second place winner will receive an award of $500. The third place winner will receive an award of $250. All of these winners will also be invited and sponsored to attend the 2017 AAHHE National Conference in Irvine, California to present their dissertations. In addition, one of the winners will be invited to ETS corporate headquarters in Princeton, New Jersey to present their dissertation.
The competition is open to anyone who has completed a dissertation in the social sciences, broadly defined, between December 2014 and August 1, 2016. Additionally, the research needs to have application to the greater Hispanic community.
Dissertations are eligible if they are in domains that are related to the ETS corporate mission, including education, linguistics, psychology, statistics, testing, and so forth. Studies using any research approach (historical, experimental, survey, qualitative, mixed methods, etc.) are eligible.
Dissertations in the humanities, basic sciences, technology, engineering, and mathematics are not eligible.
