Ed Leadership Student Transcription and Editing Award

The Educational Leadership (EL) Department in the Watson College of Education is a diverse and dynamic group of educators and scholars committed to improving leadership at all levels of education. Through our teaching, scholarship, and service, we facilitate understanding, research and implementation of practices that promote social justice, global perspectives, creativity and innovation, and capacity building - practices we believe are essential to educational leadership. 

Ed Leadership Student Transcription and Editing Award:

Students cannot be reimbursed for work that has already been completed. UNCW needs to pay the vendor directly for the services you are requesting.

The Educational Leadership Student Transcription and Editing Award is designed to reward excellence in scholarship and increase the visibility of UNCW's graduate programs and research. The EL Department will offer each year, as funds are available, an opportunity for students to request funding for transcription or editing services that directly relate to an EDL class. The faculty would like to support students in their efforts to be academic scholars in the field of educational leadership through student presentations of original, creative research or projects.

The application opens in the Fall of each year and remains open until all funds are exhausted for each academic year. The funds, once granted, must be exhausted before May 1 of each calendar year. In the event of limited funds, preference will be given to applications from students beyond their first year of graduate study who did not receive allocations in the prior year.

  • Students must be in good standing and making satisfactory progress toward completion of their degree.
  • To be eligible to receive the allocation, the student must submit proof of project, paper acceptance, or evidence prior to receiving award.
  • Full allocations do not exceed $750 per applicant.
  • Proposals should be submitted as early as possible.
  • Work cannot be started until full approvals have been obtained (including issuance of a UNCW purchase order). A minimum two-week window is necessary to receive all approvals prior to the start of work. An estimate of the work to be done will need to be provided with your request. Once the work is completed, an invoice will need to be issued by the vendor for payment.

To apply, the student must be enrolled in one of the programs in the Educational Leadership department. In order to be considered for an award, please complete the application by clicking on the following linkhttps://uncw.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_1NPFih9Yhc2hKx8
