ILA Dina Feitelson Research Award—Discontinued

This is a US$500 award established to honor the memory of Dina Feitelson for a current literature published worldwide, focusing on reading and related disciplines to recognize an outstanding empirical study, published in English in a refereed journal. Journals include reports on an investigation of aspects of literacy acquisition such as phonemic awareness, the alphabetic principle, bilingualism, home influences on literacy development, or cross-cultural studies of beginning reading. The results of the study should have clear implications for instruction.
