2023 ATTW Amplification Award Applications

Applications should be submitted to ATTW Secretary Ann Shivers-McNair at shiversmcnair@arizona.edu by 11:59 PM PST on April 21, 2023.

As part of ATTW’s commitment to social justice practices and increasing organizational participation and supporting research from underrepresented scholars and teachers of technical communication, ATTW is offering three awards to recognize and amplify the important contributions of underrepresented students and/or non-tenure track faculty presenting at the online ATTW 2023 Conference. The award includes a conference registration waiver and a financial award of $500. Award recipients will be honored at the ATTW awards reception.

Eligible candidates for this award include students and non-tenure-track faculty whose race, ethnicity, gender, disability, sexual orientation, and/or nationality are underrepresented in the field of technical communication. To apply, please submit an extended abstract (not more than 750 words) that summarizes the applicant’s ATTW presentation and its contribution(s) to the field of technical communication. The Amplification Awards Selection Committee will prioritize abstracts that are clearly defined and offer significant pedagogical, theoretical, and/or methodological contributions to the field of technical communication.

Graduate student applicants may apply for both this award and the Graduate Research Award.
