Book Award Endowment Campaign

Please join us in our summer-long campaign to grow the endowment for the newly created Teaching Literature Book Award, an international, juried prize that seeks to encourage and recognize excellence in research on teaching at the college level. The endowment is a permanent fund for the biennial prize. It will support a mini-residence at ISU by the author of the prize-winning book, which will include a public talk and in-service for faculty, graduate students, and interested public school teachers, as well as a cash prize for the winner, and stipends for internationally-renowned jurors to choose the awardee. Between now and the end of summer, we seek to raise $3000 in contributions to match the amount already generously donated by faculty, staff, and others. More information is available under the “prizes and scholarships” link on the upper left side of the page.
