TIRF – The International Research Foundation for English Language Education – 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. With this message, we are inviting nominations for the 2018 TIRF Alatis Prize competition.
For this year’s prize, we invite nominations of outstanding articles or chapters that were published during calendar years of 2016 or 2017.
TIRF will only consider publications nominated by someone other than the author(s) of the published work. Individuals may only nominate one article/chapter per competition year. An author may have only one article/chapter under review per competition year. TIRF Trustees are ineligible to be nominated for the Alatis Prize.
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 August 31, 2017. For more information about TIRF’s Alatis Prize, further details pertaining to important dates, and to learn about the nomination procedures, please visit:
