Awards and Nominations
2022 CASIE Graduate Student Award
The Canadian Association for the Study of Indigenous Education (CASIE/ACEEA), as an associate member in the Canadian Society for the Study of Education (CSSE), has the responsibility for providing forums for scholarly discussion related to Indigenous education within CSSE, within Canadian Faculties of Education, and in society at large. The Association’s mission is to promote the study of Indigenous education among faculty members, students, and others in Canada and abroad. In order to carry out this mission, CASIE/ACEEA is happy to call forapplications for the 2022 CASIE/ACEEA Graduate Student Award.
As an organization committed to promoting Indigenous peoples and education, CASIE/ACEEA encourages the submission of scholarly work from Indigenous graduate students for presentation at CASIE/ACEEA’s annual conference each year. Presentations that explore Indigenous education issues and methodologies, or have at their centre research on Indigenous peoples and education, are welcome. CASIE/ACEEA encourages proposals that broaden the definition of traditional scholarship to include innovative and creative research.
All university graduate students may submit an application for the Award, which is intended to support participation in Congress. Preference will be given to Indigenous student applicants (please describe your community affiliations in your cover letter). Submitters must be current members of CASIE/ACEEA, must have current graduate student status or have graduated less than one year from the date of the award, and must have proposed a presentation for the CSSE annual conference (ideally for CASIE but not necessarily). The applicant must be supported by a statement of nomination from a faculty member who can serve as a reference for the student and their work.
Please send complete applications by email to CASIE/ACEEA by March 1st, 2022. Once applications have been received, the executive committee of CASIE/ACEEA will read and adjudicate the nominations. (In the event of any conflicts of interest, committee members will recuse themselves.)
In order to move forward to adjudication, applications must include the following:
A brief cover letter/statement introducing yourself and explaining why you wish to be considered (email format is fine);
A copy of the proposal you submitted for the 2022 CSSE conference;
A verybrief statement of support/nomination from a faculty member (email format is fine).
Recipient(s) will be recognized at the annual CASIE/ACEEA annual general meeting and will be sent a prize to support Congress costs. (Prize amounts in the range of $100-500 will be determined depending on the applicant pool and funds available.) Recipients will also be highlighted on the CASIE/ACEEA website. Nominees for this award will also be forwarded for automatic consideration for a Congress Graduate Merit Award (CGMA).
Please send applications via email to Aubrey Hanson, firstname.lastname@example.org with “CASIE Graduate Student Award” in the subject line.

CACS – ACÉC Cynthia Chambers Master’s Thesis Award
In her provocative address of what was absent or underrepresented in the landscape of curriculum studies in Canada, Cynthia Chambers – whose life writing as a form of inquiry and Indigenous Studies research around Indigenous literacies of place has inspired educational thinkers in Canada and beyond – challenged scholars “to write a topography for curriculum theory, one that begins at home but journeys elsewhere” (1999, p. 148). In honour of Dr. Chambers, the Canadian Association for Curriculum Studies (CACS) annually awards the Cynthia Chambers Thesis Award for an outstanding Master’s thesis in curriculum studies in Canada. This award is intended for students who defended a thesis at a Canadian university in the calendar year preceding the application deadline of February 7th, 2022. The thesis may be presented in either English or French.
Prize The winner of the CACS Cynthia Chambers Thesis Award will receive a plaque and expenses to participate in the 2022 CACS Celebration, which will take place as part of the CSSE Annual Conference, May 14 - 20, 2022.
Submission Requirements Interested applicants or their thesis supervisors should submit the following, as three separate electronic MS Word files:
A cover page providing the following information: applicant’s name; current address, phone and e-mail; the name of the university where the study was completed; the name of the supervisor(s) and the external examiner; the defense date
An abstract of no more than 1000-1200 words (1000 for English and 1200 for French), which includes the full title and a brief description of the intent, design and results of the inquiry, to make the case that the submission meets the criteria of the award, i.e., that the thesis is pertinent, original and makes a significant contribution to curriculum studies research in Canada
A current copy of the applicant’s curriculum vitae.
Deadline for submissions: February 7, 2022 Please write “Chambers Award” in the subject line of the email, which is to be sent to Avril Aitken email@example.com
