* Note on group nominations: Nominations of groups are welcome for the Henry Trueba Award, the Distinguished Contributions to Social Contexts in Education Research – Lifetime Achievement, and the Mentoring Award. If the nominees belong to a center, group, lab, etc., the nomination could be made on the name of the group. Otherwise, individuals in the collaborative group could be nominated, but the requirement is that the people or units get nominated for a program of scholarship (not for a few loosely linked papers) that speaks to the spirit of the award. The nomination letter should clearly explain the rationale.
