Halcyon Lawrence, a Brittan Fellow in the School of Literature, Media, and Communication (LMC) at Georgia Institute of Technology, is one of 20 recipients to receive the 2018 Conference on College Composition and Communication (CCCC) Scholars for the Dream Travel Award. Lawrence will be presented the award on Thursday, March 15, during the 2018 CCCC Annual Convention in Kansas City, Missouri.
CCCC is an integral organization within the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) that sponsors the Scholars for the Dream Awards to encourage scholarship by historically underrepresented groups. This includes Black, Latinx, Asian, American Indian/Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, or other Pacific Islander scholars.
CCCC offers to scholars up to twenty travel awards of $1,000 each, sponsors a reception for all award winners, and offers a one-year membership in NCTE and CCCC. The award is presented for work in the field to recognize outstanding scholarship and research in the areas of pedagogy, practice, research, and theory. Applicants are considered for the award based on their originality of research, significance of pedagogical or theoretical contributions to the field, and potential for larger, subsequent projects.
LMC is part of Georgia Tech’s Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts.
