Call for Nominations: 2020 WSCA Distinguished Scholar Award


The Western States Communication Association is seeking nominations for the 2020 Distinguished Scholar Award. The recipient must be a WSCA member who has made significant and sustained contributions to scholarship that has made a difference in the ways scholars and students think about the nature, function, and scope of communication.

Criteria include (1) a sustained research program, (2) that is theoretically grounded, (3) analytically sound, (4) advances the discipline (as indicated by citations and other evidence), and (5) contains work featured in WSCA journals as well as other outlets.

The award committee especially encourages nominations from our historically marginalized and underrepresented colleagues.

The nomination should include a nomination letter, academic vita, and can include no more than three letters of support (self-nominations are acceptable).

The scholar nominated for the award is honored during the WSCA Annual Conference Luncheon, so it is important that every effort is made to ensure the recipient is present to receive the award. As such, please confirm the nominee's willingness to be considered for this award and commitment to attend the 2020 WSCA convention in Denver, CO, before submitting nominations.

Nominations should be submitted by email to Dr. Robert Layne at no later than November 24, 2019.  Please include "WSCA Scholar Award" in the email subject line and attach documentation as either Microsoft Word or PDF (.doc, .docx, or .pdf) files.

Please direct any questions about this award and/or nomination process to Robert Layne.
