International Travel Award for Distinguished Service in Educational Reform

The CIES International Travel Award (ITA) for Distinguished Service in Educational Reform was established through an endowment from George Soros and the Open Society Institute (OSI)], and expanded under CIES President Ratna Ghosh to encourage distinguished researchers and practitioners from the Global South to participate in CIES conferences. Launched at the 2009 annual conference, the endowment attempts to facilitate the participation of international education experts who serve in countries where international projects are implemented.


Several awards of $1,000 USD each will be awarded for travel to the upcoming Annual Meeting of CIES. Conference participants from countries in the Global South with at least five (5) years of professional experience in educational development are eligible to apply.

Applicants must have submitted a paper presentation abstract through the conference proposal submission system and receive acceptance for inclusion in the upcoming conference program. Although applicants may also wish to apply for the UREAG (Under-represented Racial, Ethnic and Ability Groups) Committee Travel Awards , those selected to receive travel funding will be limited to only one CIES travel award.
