Lillian Lodge Kopenhaver Outstanding Early-Career Woman Scholar Award
Nominations are now accepted for the 2021 Lillian Lodge Kopenhaver Award honoring a woman-identifying early-career scholar who demonstrates outstanding research and potential for future scholarship.
Sponsored by The Lillian Lodge Kopenhaver Center for the Advancement of Women in Communication at Florida International University and the AEJMC Commission on the Status of Women, this recognition is designed to honor early-career women faculty researchers and encourage them as they pursue their research agendas in the academy.
An early-career faculty member is defined as a scholar who has the Ph.D., but does NOT have tenure, and is preferably on a tenure-track, but might be considered if a collegiate-level instructor/lecturer. Nominees must be members of AEJMC.
To nominate a scholar, please send:
- a letter outlining qualifications
- a one-page summary of her research agenda
- a curriculum vita
We welcome nominations for scholars from various cultural backgrounds and institutions, including international scholars. We realize that outstanding scholarship can manifest itself differently from scholar to scholar, so we encourage the nomination letters and research statements to be explicit about highlighting the candidates’ unique strengths. Both quantity and quality will be taken into account. Self-nominations are accepted and encouraged.
The winner will be chosen by a panel of scholars and honored with a check for $250 and a plaque in August 2020 at the AEJMC conference in San Francisco or at an alternate opportunity if the conference is rescheduled or offered in an alternate format. Lillian Lodge Kopenhaver, dean emeritus, and professor at Florida International University’s School of Journalism and Mass Communication will present the award.
Please send any questions and award nominations by June 15, 2021, to Award Coordinator, Katie R. Place, Ph.D. at Katie.Place@quinnipiac.edu.
