For International Education

Penn faculty members are invited to submit nominations for The Harold Josephson Award for Professional Promise in International Education. The award recognizes emerging leadership in international education through the student's graduate study and research, especially research in the field of international education. Send nominations to Dr. Joyce M. Randolph, Office of International Programs, 133 Bennett Hall/6275. Dr. Randolph is Penn's institutional representative to the Association of International Education Administrators (AIEA).

The internal deadline at Penn for nominations is October 15. (Since Penn may nominate only one graduate student, Dr. Randolph will convene a faculty advisory committee to select Penn's nominee.)

Please note that the award consists of a $1,000 travel grant to attend the annual conference of AIEA and complimentary conference registration. The award does not provide funds for research projects.
