SERVSIG and the digital media lab @ UMass Boston are proud to initiate the Emerging Service Scholar Award in 2015.
The Emerging Service Scholar Award recognizes contributions to advancing the study of service research, and will be given annually to honor the contributions of a researcher in the earlier stages of his or her academic career. The award is given annually and is presented at the Frontiers in Services Conference. The award was initiated by the digital media lab @ UMass Boston and granted by the University of Porto
Recipients of the SERVSIG Emerging Service Scholar Award should have their doctoral degree up to 10 years prior to the year of the award or be nominated for the award in the last two years. Other eligibility issues:
– Candidates for a SERVSIG Award do not have to be a member of SERVSIG or the AMA to be eligible to win.
– Candidates may be from anywhere in the world. From the beginning, SERVSIG has sought to be globally oriented and globally active.
Every year, the SERVSIG Board invites new volunteers to serve on the various awards committees. In the true SERVSIG spirit of inclusion, the SERVSIG Board members invite SERVSIG community members to serve and follow the defined award procedures (making sure to have representatives from various universities, continents, expertise, etc.). Based on the received proposals from the community and a defined procedure the award committee members chose the recipient. They subsequently inform the SERVSIG board and the results are shared at the Frontiers in Service Conference.
