The CIES Higher Education SIG announces our Awards Call for Nominations that honors publications and individuals whose academic work focuses on international and comparative issues in Higher Education. Four categories are honored on an annual basis: (1)Best Article, (2) Best Book, (3) Best Dissertation, and (4) Lifetime Contribution. The Awards Committee makes a particular effort to ensure the creation of a broad slate that speaks to the diversity of the CIES membership in terms of geography, institution, gender, and race/ethnicity.

All CIES members are invited to make nominations. Self-nominations are also welcome. We expect that nominations are made with the prior approval of the candidate and that nominations should include some background information about why you think that the submission is worthy of receiving an award.

Please send requests for the nomination form and then all nomination packages to Gustavo Gregorutti, HESIG Awards Committee Chairperson, at by July 15th of each year.
