Fredric M. Jablin Doctoral Dissertation Award
2012 Call for Submissions
Deadline: August 1, 2012
The ILA is pleased to partner with The Jepson School of Leadership Studies at the University of Richmond on the 2012 Fredric M. Jablin Doctoral Dissertation Award. This award is given annually to a scholar whose doctoral dissertation research, while on any topic and from any discipline, demonstrates substantial insights and implications for the study of leadership. The award was established to honor and celebrate the life of Dr. Fredric M. Jablin (1952-2004).
In order to be eligible for the award competition, a doctoral dissertation must be completed between August 1, 2010 and August 1, 2012. With the upcoming 20th anniversary of the Jepson School of Leadership Studies, instead of being honored at the ILA's annual global conference, the 2012 recipient will be honored at Jepson's 20th anniversary conference, Feb 1-2, 2013, where the recipient will be asked to present their doctoral dissertation research.
The recipient of the award will receive the following:
- $1,000 prize
- Registration & Travel expenses to Jepson's 20th Anniversary conference
- Complimentary one year membership to the ILA
- Complimentary conference registration to the 2013 or 2014 ILA global conference
1. Applicants must complete an online application by August 1, 2012 at: jepson.richmond.edu/about/jda/submissions.html
2. Applicants must also submit via email (see instructions below) by August 1, 2012 the following materials:
- a letter of interest,
- 3-5 page abstract of a substantive doctoral dissertation chapter (specifically, the chapter that best represents the doctoral dissertation),
- brief biography, and
- verification of the dissertation defense date (e.g., a letter from the dissertation advisor).
Candidates should e-mail submission materials as PDF attachments to email@example.com. Please do NOT send the dissertation. The award committee will contact semi-finalists on or before August 24th to request a full doctoral dissertation chapter.
