Christopher Brumfit PhD/Ed.D. Thesis Award 2010
Sponsored by Cambridge University Press and promoted by Language Teaching

Aim
To recognize doctoral thesis research that makes a significant and original
contribution to the field of SLA and/or FL teaching and learning.

Award
- Cambridge University Press books to the value of £500

Eligibility
To be considered for the award:
- The candidate’s institution must have accepted the thesis for the
PhD/Ed.D. no more than two years before the date of the award application.
- The research must have been completed as part of the requirements for a
doctoral degree or its equivalent at a university.
- Although the thesis under consideration must be in English, the research
may be related to work concerning any second language.

Application Process
In the first instance, applicants must submit the following:
- Two files: One MS WORD file containing a summary of the thesis, not to
exceed 17 double-spaced pages, with references, font size 12, and a
separate MS WORD file containing a 150-word abstract of the thesis. The
maximum size of any file sent should not exceed 2 Mb.

Care should be taken in drafting the summary so that the referees are
provided with as detailed a report as possible on the work undertaken. The
summary should include a brief description of the theoretical background of
the research and specify the research questions, the research methods
(including data analyses) used and why these were chosen, the results, and
implications of these outcomes. It should also make clear the perceived
contribution of the work undertaken to the field of second language
acquisition and/or foreign language teaching and learning.

- Proof of the award of the degree by the candidate's university. This can
be a scanned copy in pdf form of the degree certificate or a scanned
official letter/transcript from the university in question stating clearly
the date of conferment of the degree.

Only electronic applications are accepted.

Evaluation Criteria
- Scholarly or professional significance to the field of second or foreign
