Outstanding Doctoral Dissertation Award
Effective immediately, the PDK International Outstanding Doctoral Dissertation Award has been discontinued in an effort to support members’ research in a more impactful way. Moving forward, PDK will expand project and research grant programs for PDK and Pi Lambda Theta members. These grant programs support action research in schools, including joint school-university research efforts. PDK is also exploring opportunities to support project and research grants with a focus on impact and innovation. More information will be available by July 1, 2013.
