The ONE Emerging Scholar Award recognizes early career academics who have already made outstanding research contributions in the area of organizations and the natural environment, and who appear to have a strong potential to continue making such contributions in the near future.
The Emerging Scholar Award winner will receive a plaque from the ONE Division, a $500 check from the ONE Division and award sponsor, recognition at the annual ONE Business Meeting held during the Academy of Management conference, and a listing on the ONE website with the other past Emerging Scholar Award winners.
To be eligible, the nominee must be at an early stage in her/his career, generally within six years of receiving his or her PhD (or other terminal degree) and be pre-tenure (or equivalent) and have been a member of good standing in the ONE Division for the past three years. In a case where a scholar has taken a formal leave of absence due to illness or birth/adoption of a child, s/he may request an extension of the six- or three-year window from the selection committee chair.
The nomination process is relatively simple. One can self-nominate or be nominated by others. A nomination consists of a short statement (no more than two pages) about the candidate sent via e-mail by the extended deadline of May 31, 2018, along with a complete, up-to-date CV, to the Emerging Scholar Award Chair, Dr Joel Gehman (firstname.lastname@example.org) and the ONE Awards committee member, Dr Ana Cristina Siqueira (email@example.com). Your email should use the subject line: ONE Emerging Scholar Nomination. In addition, the nominator or nominee should be sure to make key papers, books, monographs, and popular outlet pieces available, upon request, to the committee.
While the nomination process is simple, the selection process is less so. The committee will examine the candidate's overview statement and corpus of research. The criteria normally applied in other ONE awards to assess quality will be also be applied to the work of the Emerging Scholar: the work's relevance, its academic contribution, theoretical and methodological rigor, and practical implications. Based on these criteria, the committee's knowledge of the field, and information sometimes solicited from third-party experts, the committee will choose a single ONE Emerging Scholar Award winner for the year.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Dr Joel Gehman (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dr Ana Cristina Siqueira (email@example.com).
Thank you for your interest!
