[Commlist] ICA Early Career Scholar Award

Sat Jan 04 07:06:55 GMT 2020

Subject: *ICA Early Career Scholar Award – nominations due 31 January *

Each year the International Communication Association (ICA) gives out an *Early Career Scholar Award* (formerly Young Scholar Award), which honors a scholar no more than seven years past receipt of the Ph.D. (for the award to be presented in 2020, nominees should have received their Ph.D. degree no earlier than 2013) for a body of work that has contributed to knowledge of the field of communication and shows promise for continued development. The selection committee judges the contribution and promise of young scholars based on the strength of published work, including its conceptual foundation and argumentative clarity, on the scholar's productivity at a given career stage, on the rigor of the research produced so far, and on the promise of existing work serving as a springboard for continuing scholarship. More information is available online at
