The Awards Committee for the Susan C. Eaton Scholar-Practitioner Memorial Fund has issued a call for proposals for a $3,000 grant to be awarded in June 2013 to a practitioner engaged in a scholarly research project in the labor and employment relations or related field. Only LERA members are eligible to submit a proposal for the Committee to consider.
The grant and award is given annually to the most promising and relevant proposal for research or research-in-action consistent with the values and principles of the work of Susan C. Eaton and that best honors her legacy as an outstanding scholar-practitioner. In order to recognize promising work from both the scholarly and practice sides of the labor and employment relations and related fields, the Award follows an alternate-year pattern. This year, the grant award will be made to the best proposal from an individual or team of a practitioner perspective.
LERA members may submit a 1-2 page proposal by email to LERAoffice@illinois.edu on or before January 15, 2013 outlining a research project for the Committee’s consideration. The outline should include:
The awardee will be recognized at the LERA Annual Meeting June 2013 and will receive a check for $3,000 at that time.
