Association of International Education Administrators
The Harold Josephson Award for Professional Promise in International Education
Penn faculty members are invited to submit nominations for The Harold Josephson Award for Professional Promise in International Education. The award recognizes emerging leadership in international education through the student's graduate study and research, especially research in the field of international education. Send nominations to Geoffrey Gee (firstname.lastname@example.org), Office of International Programs, Suite 1W, 3701 Chestnut Street /3199. Mr. Gee is Penn's institutional representative to the Association of International Education Administrators (AIEA).
The internal deadline at Penn for nominations is November 1, 2004. (Since Penn may nominate only one graduate student, Mr. Gee will convene a faculty advisory committee to select Penn's nominee.) Criteria for selection will include: demonstrated interest in the field of international education; research or completed graduate courses that demonstrate research skills and insights; other tangible recognition from the home institution (outstanding graduate teaching award, leadership in graduate governance on the campus, campus nomination for Fulbright, NSEP, or other nationally competitive awards).
Please note that the award consists of a $1,000 travel grant to attend the annual conference of AIEA and complimentary conference registration. The award does not provide funds for research projects.
For more information on AIEA, see www.aieaworld.org. AIEA's annual conference will be held February 16-19 2005, in Washington, D.C.
