29 June 2016 (Alexandria, VA) - The International Research Foundation for English Language Education (TIRF) established the TIRF James E. Alatis Prize for Research on Language Policy and Planning in Educational Contexts to honor the contributions of our outstanding educator and association founder and leader to the field. TIRF is now inviting nominations for the 2017 Alatis Prize competition. 

For this year’s prize, TIRF invites nominations of outstanding articles or chapters that were published during the calendar years of 2015 or 2016. TIRF will only consider publications nominated by someone other than the author(s) of the published work. A prize of $500 will be awarded for an article or chapter published in English and dealing with some aspect of language policy or planning in educational contexts. Submissions may be articles published in scholarly peer-reviewed journals or peer-reviewed chapters in edited books.

Nominations are due by 1 September 2016. For more information about TIRF’s Alatis Prize, further details pertaining to important dates, and to learn about the nomination procedures, please visit the TIRF website.
