John T. Dunlop Scholar Awards

John T. Dunlop Scholar Awards

DEADLINE: JANUARY 15, 2018

The LERA Awards Committee has issued a call for nominations for LERA awards to recognize outstanding academic contributions to research by recent entrants (must have received terminal degree within last 10 years) to the field. One award will recognize the research contribution of an academic for the best contribution to international and/or comparative labor and employment research. A second academic award will recognize the best contribution to research that addresses an industrial relations/employment problem of national significance.

Letters of nomination accompanied by vitas or substantial accounts of the accomplishments of the nominee should be submitted no later than January 15, and winners will be notified in the Spring shortly thereafter. Awardees will be recognized at the LERA Annual Meeting.
