Dear Graduate Chairs, Associate Deans and Department Contacts:

The following is an announcement about an outstanding dissertation competition. Please forward if you know of a student who may qualify.

Sincerely, Katie Tadlock

The American Association of Hispanics in Higher Education (AAHHE), in conjunction with Educational Testing Service (ETS), has announced the third annual Outstanding Dissertation Competition.  The 2011 competition is open to those who have completed a dissertation between December 2009 and August 1, 2011 that either focuses on Hispanics in higher education or on select disciplines by an Hispanic student.  AAHHE and ETS are providing an opportunity to spotlight top doctoral students and, at the same time, rewarding excellence in Hispanic student performance at the doctoral level.

Details about the competition and recognition for the winners are available at www.aahhe.org<http://www.aahhe.org>.  Please share the competition guidelines with your faculty, recent doctoral graduates and current candidates that are eligible and encourage their participation.  Note that the first deadline for participation in the competition is September 5, 2011.  The top three winners will:

1.       be invited and sponsored to attend the 6th AAHHE National Conference (March 8-10, 2012) in Costa Mesa, California;

2.       present their dissertations; and

3.       receive their award.

1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners will receive a monetary award of $5,000, $2,000, and $1,000, respectively, and the announcement is widely disseminated to AAHHE and ETS listserves.

This is an important opportunity for your graduate students that will both promote them as they pursue their career and promote your institution as producing top-ranked students.  Thank you for your support of your Hispanic graduate students in achieving their goals.
