2013 CBW/CCCC Fellowship

The Council on Basic Writing is pleased to announce the 2013 CBW/CCCC Fellowship, including $500 awarded to a teacher of basic writing to subsidize travel to CCCC in Las Vegas, Nevada in March 2013.

Apply Today!

Fellowship applications should include a comprehensive two-page letter that details the benefits of attending the CBW Workshop and CCCC. This letter should clearly and specifically address the following key issues:

How will attending the CBW Workshop and CCCC benefit the interests and needs of the students with whom you work?

How do you plan to share the information and ideas gathered at CCCC with colleagues?

How will this experience help you to become more active in advocating for students in basic writing (or other preparatory/developmental writing) courses?

A completed Fellowship application should include this letter, a current curriculum vita and, if applicable, the title and abstract of an accepted 2013 CCCC presentation.

Questions, concerns, and completed Fellowship applications should be forwarded by email to:

Dr. J. Elizabeth Clark

The CBW/CCCC Fellowship is intended to support basic writing (including preparatory and developmental writing) instructors who might otherwise have difficulty attending CCCC. Priority will be given to applicants who clearly demonstrate how attending the 2013 CBW workshop and CCCC will benefit their own professional development, their students, and their colleagues.

Fellowship applicants need not have had a paper accepted for presentation at CCCC. However, if presenting at the CCCC, titles and abstracts of papers should be included with the application.

The Fellowship winner should plan to attend the CBW Pre-Conference Workshop (the full Wednesday before CCCC). Also, the Fellowship recipient will be recognized and invited to speak briefly at the CBW SIG at CCCC.

January 12, 2013: Applications due

January 30, 2013: Award recipient notified

March 2013: Winner attends CBW workshop. Winner presents on professional interests at the CBW SIG & receives award.
