Deadline: Not specified
Click here for more information

This award recognizes the best doctoral dissertation of the year in the area of promotion of wellness. 
The purpose of the Society for Community Research and Action annual dissertation award is to identify the best doctoral dissertation of the year in the area of promotion of wellness. 

Wellness is defined consistent with the conceptualization developed by Emory Cowen to include the promotion of positive well-being and the prevention of dysfunction. 

Dissertations of high scholarly excellence that contribute to knowledge about theoretical issues or interventions are eligible for this award. 

The winners of both dissertation awards will each receive a prize of $100, a one-year complimentary membership in SCRA, and up to $300 in reimbursement for travel expenses in order to receive the award at the APA meeting. 

Eligibility:
Dissertations are considered eligible that deal with a range of topics relevant to the promotion of wellness, including: 
  • Promoting positive attachments between infant and parent 
  • Development of age appropriate cognitive and interpersonal competencies 
  • Developing settings such as families and schools that favor wellness outcomes 
  • Having the empowering sense of being in control of one’s fate 
  • Coping effectively with stress 
  • Any dissertation completed within these dates may be submitted. 
  • Individuals may nominate themselves or be nominated by a member of SCRA.
Nominations should include: 
  • A cover letter and four copies of a detailed dissertation abstract should be submitted to the Chair of the Dissertation Awards Committee. 
  • The nomination cover letter should include the name, graduate school affiliation and thesis advisor, current address, phone number, and (if available) e-mail address and fax number of the nominee. 
  • The abstract should present a statement of the problem, methods, findings, and conclusions. 
  • Abstracts typically range from 4-8 pages and may not exceed ten double-spaced pages, including tables and figures. Identifying information should be omitted from the abstract. 
  • In the spirit of encouraging junior scholars, it is the preference of the SCRA Dissertation Awards Committee that the Best Dissertation and Emory Cowan Awards not be awarded to the same person. However, in the event that one dissertation meets the criteria for both awards and is deemed to be of such outstanding quality as to significantly distinguish itself from the other nominations, the Committee may elect to award both awards to a single scholar. 
To apply: Please e-mail a cover letter and a copy of the dissertation abstract to Branda Nowell (branda_nowell@ncsu.edu).
