North American Systemic Functional Linguistics Association (NASFLA)
Promising Scholar Award
Applications and Nominations Due: February 22, 2016

General Description

This award is given by NASFLA in recognition of a pre-tenure scholar who is in the first five years of her his/her career and who has made outstanding contributions to applied linguistics through use of systemic functional linguistics as a theoretical framework, an analytical tool, and/ or pedagogical resource.

The selection committee will look for originality, creativity and productivity, and for evidence of the scholarly significance of the candidate’s work. Evidence and rationale should emphasize the contributions of the candidate's work to the field of SFL and comment on the nominee's potential for future contributions to the field.

Criteria

  • Doctoral degree earned within the past five years (2010-2016)
  • Promising record of scholarship drawing on SFL
  • Commitment to making ongoing and significant contributions to scholarship using SFL
  • Particular consideration given to contributions that address issues of equity and diversity, as well as contributions that make connections to practices in the field (education, healthcare, etc.)

Application and Nomination Process

Interested applicants should submit the following documentation:

  1. The nominee’s CV
  2. A published or publishable (in press) paper that shows deep understanding and use of SFL in innovative and rigorous ways
  3. A brief statement, maximum one-page, single-spaced, describing nominee’s current research program and how this research advances or engages the field of SFL.
  4. A nomination letter from an SFL scholar who assesses the contributions of the nominee’s research and scholarship, as well as potential for continuing contributions. This letter may be submitted by the applicant or by the recommender and must be received by the application deadline.

Please send electronic nominations and/or application packages by February 22, 2016 to Shanan Fitts; fittss@appstate.edu. The awardee will be named at the annual NASFLA meeting at the 2016 AAAL conference (Miami, FL, April 9, 2016).
