American Association of Hispanics in Higher Education and Educational Testing Services Outstanding Dissertations Competition

Application Deadline:  August 12, 2017

The American Association of Hispanics in Higher Education (AAHHE) and Educational Testing Service (ETS) are proud to announce the Outstanding Dissertations Competition. By developing this competition, AAHHE and ETS are providing an opportunity to spotlight top doctoral students and, at the same time, are rewarding excellence in Hispanic student performance at the doctoral level. The goals are to encourage greater numbers of prepared students to enter and successfully complete doctoral programs and to enhance the quality of the dissertations they write.

The first place winner of the Outstanding Dissertations Competition will receive an award in the amount of $3,000. The second place winner will receive an award of $2,000. The third place winner will receive an award of $1,000. All of these winners will also be invited and sponsored to attend the 2018 AAHHE National Conference 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 2015 and August 1, 2017. 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.
