Michael Pyryt Collaboration Award (2022)
Print

The Michael Pyryt Collaboration Award is for a paper published in the past 2 years that included a collaboration between a scholar in the field of gifted education and a scholar outside of the field, in memory of our friend and longtime gifted collaborator, Michael Pyryt.


This award was created to recognize a scholar of giftedness, creativity or talent development and a collaborator who has not previously published scholarship associated with giftedness, creativity, or talent. The award is given to those who seek to promote scholarship in the area of giftedness, creativity, and talent to the larger education research community through collaborations and who concurrently benefit from the insights of important scholars who have not previously studied or written about gifted, talented, or creative populations.

Eligibility Criteria:

Publication (may be “online first”) in a gifted or creativity journal (such as Gifted Child Quarterly, Journal for the Education of the Gifted, Roeper Review, High Ability Studies, Journal of Advanced Academics, Journal of Creative Behavior, or Creativity Research Journal). 

The paper must have been published January 1, 2020 or later.

One co-author is a scholar in the field of giftedness, creativity, or talent and a member of the ROGCT SIG.

One co-author is a post-doctoral degree, has not previously published in the fields of giftedness, creativity, or talent development, but has a strong history of published scholarship in another field.

The potential impact of the work on the fields of giftedness, creativity, or talent development should be significant.

The overall quality of the publication should represent a high-quality methodological design and/or theoretical and conceptual frameworks.

Form of Recognition:
A cash award of $250 for the first 2 authors of the winning paper.
Plaque for each scholar.
Recognition at the SIG business meeting.
