Spencer Foundation Award


About the Spencer Foundation Award

The APPAM Policy Council approved this award on April 8, 2005. The Spencer Foundation Lecture, awarded biennually, recognizes noteworthy contributions through research and analysis in the field of education policy and management.  Funding for the award comes from the Spencer Foundation, created by Lyle M. Spencer in 1962 to "investigate ways in which education, broadly conceived, can be improved around the world."
The winner will deliver the lecture at the 2019 APPAM Fall Research Conference in Denver, Colorado. In addition, the winner receives $5,000 and support for travel expenses, and APPAM and the Spencer Foundation may arrange to publish the lecture. The recipient is expected to produce a written version of the lecture within a reasonable time after the public presentation.
Any body of work will be considered, although the selection committee may, from time to time, decide to establish time limits for what may be considered. The selection committee may decide not to make an award in any particular year. The selection committee for the lecture consists of three people appointed by APPAM and two persons appointed by the Spencer Foundation. 
Nominations may be made by any individual or organization. (Individuals may nominate their own work.) The letter of nomination (with the nominee's current address, email address, and phone number) should detail the contributions made by the work to the field of education policy and management, and should include examples of the body of work. The next Spencer Foundation Award nominations will be held for the 2019 APPAM Fall Research Conference. A letter of nomination detailing the nominee’s accomplishments should be sent to Samantha Oliver, soliver@appam.org, by the deadline of Friday, July 12, 2019 at 11:59 PM PT.
