Braj B. Kachru Sudent Award

The International Association for World Englishes (IAWE) is pleased to announce it will present again this year the Braj B. Kachru Student Award, which will be given for the best paper presented by a student at the Association's international conference. The award is named in honor of Professor Braj B. Kachru, whose influential scholarship helped establish the field of world Englishes, and is in recognition in particular of his exceptional commitment to student scholarship throughout his career.

The award carries a US $800.00 check prize as well as a cash reimbursement of the current year's IAWE membership and conference registration fees. 

A committee composed of IAWE officers and/or editorial board members for the journal World Englishes will select and announce the winning paper at the international conference.
