awards-and-grants_680wThe International Literacy Association (ILA) is currently accepting submissions for its 2024 awards and grants program. This is your chance to be recognized (or to recognize a colleague!) for outstanding contributions to literacy.

ILA’s awards and grants provide recognition opportunities for literacy professionals at all stages of their career, from funding opportunities for graduate students to the organization’s highest individual honor, the William S. Gray Citation of Merit—an esteemed lifetime achievement award among the most prestigious in the literacy field. In between, there are awards honoring outstanding empirical research, ongoing and impactful collaborative partnerships, outstanding contributions to teacher education, and distinguished service to ILA.

Who we are looking for

  • Literacy professionals making waves in research, teaching, and service
  • Both seasoned experts and emerging leaders alike
  • Classroom teachers and graduate students in need of research funding

Why your nomination matters

  • It recognizes exceptional service to the field.
  • Winners join a prestigious community of past recipients including Nell K. Duke, Timothy Rasinski, and Steve Graham.
  • Recipients have their work promoted on a broader scale, which inspires others in the field.

Why it matters to ILA (and the field)

ILA has been setting the standard for literacy education for over 65 years. By recognizing excellence, we collectively advance literacy education, setting benchmarks for future professionals.

Previous winners in ILA’s awards and grants program include Nell K. Duke, Timothy Rasinski, Steve Graham, Sonia Cabell, Tricia Zucker, John Z. Strong, Elena Forzani, and Diane Lapp—last year’s recipient of the William S. Gray Citation of Merit—to name just a few.

Individuals can nominate themselves or a colleague for one of the following opportunities this year:

Submissions, which will be reviewed by teams of researchers and teacher educators from within the global ILA network, must be received by March 15, 2024. For more information, visit the ILA awards and grants website.
