Call for Nominations: TASSA Young Scholar Awards

Image TASSA launches a new award to recognize the achievements of young Turkish American scholars, as part of its 2014 Annual Meeting. The scholars are invited to submit a nomination (including self-nominations) for the inaugural TASSA Young Scholar Awards. The deadline is on January 6, 2014. The nomination package should include the nominee's latest CV along with one article (already published in the literature or a working manuscript) that exemplifies the best work of the nominee. Each winner will receive an Award Certificate at the conference, and is expected to deliver a short oral presentation during the TASSA Annual Meeting, to be held at the University of Maryland, College Park, on March 22-23, 2014.

Nomination Details for the TASSA Young Scholar Awards:
The nominations should be made online at:
Each nomination will need the CV and a representative manuscript of the nominee's best work, both in PDF. Submission of more than one publication per nominee is not permitted and would be deleted.
Graduate students, postdoctoral scholars and researchers (from both academia and industry), and junior faculty (e.g., instructors, assistant professors) who have excelled in their respective fields are eligible for this award, and the nominees will be considered in these three separate categories. The conference committee plans for at least 2 awards at each category (graduate student, postdoctoral scholar/researcher and junior faculty).
TASSA will cover partial travel and full accommodation expenses of the award recipients. All the nominees must be younger than 35 years old at the time of the nomination. Note that those who are not selected for the awards will be assigned a poster presentation during the TASSA Annual Meeting, giving them the opportunity to discuss their scholarly contributions at the conference.
