The Applied Urban Communication Research Grant is an annually endowed prize given to foster and promote significant inter-disciplinary communication research contributions that extend the boundaries of “applied research” by investigating real-life communication phenomena affecting urban communities. The prize is to be awarded to fund the development of original research that meaningfully centralizes the concerns of everyday citizens and their struggle to define, identify with, and/or construct “spaces” for discourse and/or engagement within cities.
The recipient of the prize will receive a medal and a $2,500 grant-in-aid to be awarded to fund communication research related to urban communication. Nominees will be evaluated based on the potential impact of their work as well as the quality and rigor of their contribution. Nominees must be members of ECA. The award will be presented at the annual meeting of the Eastern Communication Association.
Nominations should include:(1) a cover letter explaining why the nominee is deserving of the award; (2) a 500-word description of the work the nominee plans to do, outlining the anticipated outcomes, intended mode of dissemination of the research as well as how the research will translate in such a way that it addresses urban community needs and/or concerns; (3) anticipated budget and timetable for completion of the project; (4) a copy of the nominee’s CV; and (5) at least one supporting letter from someone well-acquainted with the nominee. Self-nominations are encouraged. Nominees shall submit five copies of the nomination packet and send the materials directly to the selection committee chair.
All nominations and materials should be sent by March 4, 2014 to:
