Each year, NASSP holds two competitions for dissertations focused on leadership research at the middle and high school levels. Through these competitions, NASSP seeks to recognize outstanding research that builds on the association's tradition of supporting best middle level and high school leadership practices for school leaders.

NASSP is proud to announce that it has renamed the dissertation award program in memory of Dr. Ted Sizer, who dedicated his life to the education of all students. Dr. Sizer is perhaps best known as the founder of the Coalition of Essential Schools (CES). His work in the development of schools and school leaders makes this dedication particularly appropriate as NASSP recognizes the outstanding research of educators.
Each award winner receives:
- Complimentary one-year NASSP membership
- Cash award of $1,000 (member) or $500 (non-member)
- Commemorative plaque
- Press release to the winner's local community newspaper
- The opportunity to have their research findings published
Candidates must submit a completed application and dissertation abstract. Information about the 2014 NASSP Dr. Ted Sizer Dissertation Awards will be available July 1, 2013.
