IDEA Scholarship Award

NCA Awards

The IDEA Scholarship Award began in 2021 and offers recognition for scholarly engagement with inclusion, diversity, equity, and access. Such engagement may be evaluated for the depth and development of an extended research program, or on the impact of ideas and innovation on the discipline, or both. There are no methodological or paradigmatic preferences identified as prerequisites for this award, as these issues transcend much of the human experience. Since there is another IDEA Award focused on community engagement, this award is more explicitly about research, the diffusion and importance of a research program, and bringing new insight and understanding to the discipline.
