 The Edward J. Ray Travel Award for Scholarship and Service  (Winter 2012)

||  Awarded for travel to Conference on College Composition and Communication 

From the award website:

Unlike other programs that grant travel funds, the Ray Award gives substantial weight to the applicant’s service to his/her department, the university, and the surrounding community. Ray Award judges also take into account the academic standing of the applicant, the applicant’s professional goals, the nature of the conference being attended, and the applicant’s ability to convey the focus of their research to a general audience.
