Nouf Fahad Alshreif, PhD candidate in English Composition and Applied Linguistics, was recently awarded a 2019 CCCC Scholars for the Dream Travel Award to attend the Conference on College Composition and Communication in Pittsburgh, PA.

Alshreif was announced as a recipient of the award on Thursday, March 14, during the 2019 Conference on College Composition and Communication (CCCC) Annual Convention in Pittsburgh. The CCCC is a constituent organization within the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE).

Alshreif is one of 20 recipients of this award. He delivered a theoretical research presentation entitled “Race as a Performative Rhetoric.”

CCCC sponsors the Scholars for the Dream Awards to encourage scholarship by historically underrepresented groups. This includes Black, Latinx, Asian, American Indian/Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, or other Pacific Islander scholars—persons whose presence and whose contributions are central to the full realization of our professional goals.

CCCC offers travel awards to scholars of $1,000 each, sponsors a reception for all award winners, and offers a one-year membership in NCTE and CCCC. When determining winners, the Awards Selection Committee considers originality of research, significance of pedagogical or theoretical contributions to the field, and potential for larger, subsequent projects.

The Conference on College Composition and Communication, with more than 5,000 members and subscribers, supports and promotes the teaching and study of composition, rhetoric, and communication skills at the college level, both in undergraduate and graduate programs. The National Council of Teachers of English, with 25,000 individual and institutional members worldwide, is dedicated to improving the teaching and learning of English and the language arts at all levels of education.
