Award for Outstanding Scholarly Research in DanceCORD is currently accepting nominations for this award.
This award honors an exceptional scholar or leader for sustained contributions to dance research. (In past years, separate awards were given in the categories of Outstanding Contribution to Dance Research and Outstanding Leadership in Dance Research, and this award encompasses both categories.) Selection may be based on a significant body of work, a single contribution that has a major lasting impact on scholarly dance research, or leadership that furthers the field. Any area of dance scholarship is eligible. No more than one award will be given in a calendar year.
, send a letter of nomination specifying and documenting the nominee’s contributions to dance studies in the format requested on the previous page. Supporting documents are vital. The Committee may request the nominator to send additional materials.

CALL FOR NOMINATIONS
The CORD awards were established to:
- recognize scholarly excellence
- contribute to motivating further research
- signal to the scholarly world at large the work of the individuals recognized.
The awards contribute not only to the visibility of the individuals and works honored, but also to the visibility of dance research and to our continuing drive for excellence in dance scholarship. Consider your nomination a way to influence the field and the CORD organization. By acknowledging your mentors, recognizing individuals who have strongly influenced you or created opportunities for you, your peers or organization, naming those who have expanded your conception of dance research, or initiated directions you'd like to see dance research (and CORD) take in the future, you participate in formulating that future.
To make a nomination please submit
- a letter detailing why the nominee should be put forward for the specific award
- the nominee's curriculum vitae
- additional relevant documentary materials to support the case
- a declaration of your interest in nominating the candidate, if any
The more thorough the letter of recommendation, and the more complete the accompanying documentation, the more convincing the nomination will be. Scholars may be at any career stage, as long as they satisfy the purpose of the award.
All nominations must include the name and contact information of the nominator. Nominations in these categories may be made only by CORD members, but individuals nominated for awards need not be CORD members.
Nominations that do not address the criteria of the specific awards will not be considered.
