Distinguished Paper Award - $1000 - Submissions Due 4/15/24

Outstanding paper presentations at the conference each year are eligible for the Distinguished Paper Award. The winner of the Distinguished Paper Award will earn a slot to present his or her paper at the following AERA annual meeting and will receive $1000 toward travel.  You must agree to present at AERA to receive this award.

  • The paper must have been presented at the conference but not previously presented or published elsewhere.
  • All authors must be NCARE members at the time of the conference.
  • Papers representing various forms and genres of research (including conceptual papers) are welcome.

The paper submitted for consideration must be no longer than the equivalent of 30 double-spaced pages with standard APA margins and 10- to 12- point type. The 30-page limit includes all tables, appendices, charts, graphs, references and other ancillaries to the text. The name, address, and phone number of the first author should appear on the cover page, which will be removed for review. No author identifying references should appear elsewhere. A 100- to 150-word abstract should be included with the paper.

Students are eligible for the Marvin Wyne Outstanding Student Paper Award or for the Distinguished Paper Award but may not apply for both simultaneously. 

NCARE is an affiliate member of the American Educational Research Association (AERA) through the Consortium of State and Regional Educational Research Associations (SRERA).
