|Student Award - GPEIG Gill-Chin Lim Best Dissertation|
Deadline: June 1
In recognition of the commitment of our late colleague, Gill-Chin Lim, to the study of humanistic aspects of globalization, the ACSP Global Planners Educators Interest Group (GPEIG) has established an award in his name: The GPEIG Gill-Chin Lim Award for the Best Dissertation on International Planning. This award is funded annually by the Consortium of Development Studies (CODS), which was founded by Dr. Gill-Chin Lim in 1982. The Gill-Chin Lim Award for the Best Dissertation on International Planning recognizes superior scholarship in a doctoral dissertation completed by a student enrolled in an ACSP-member school.
The Dissertation Committee chairperson jointly with the department chair or director of graduate studies will make the nominations. It is expected that submissions will be selected through a participatory faculty and student process. The nominees must have received their degree in the two years preceding the deadline.
The award committee will evaluate the submissions based on: a) innovative scholarship and perspective that advance the understanding of the diverse processes of international planning in the global context, with a special focus on low-income countries of the “Global South;” b) relation to global cooperation, global social responsibility, global ethics, and respect for global diversity pursued by GPEIG; c) creativity in exploring/proposing international planning alternatives; and d) organization, structure, style, clarity, and originality.
