NAKPEHE Doctoral Student Award
Joanna Davenport Poster Presentation Prize for Doctoral Students


To: All Doctoral Granting Institutions

The National Association for Kinesiology and Physical Education in Higher Education (NAKPEHE) would like to invite doctoral students to submit poster presentations for the 2007 conference in Clearwater Beach, Florida. The conference will provide the doctoral students with a wide array of sessions to attend that will have greater meaning as they prepare to enter the higher education employment arena. This year there will be a special opportunity for doctoral students to participate in the conference. All doctoral students will be offered the opportunity to participate in a committee reviewed doctoral student poster presentation session. The poster presentations will be available for viewing during a 5 hour period at the conference. A Review Committee will select one doctoral student poster to receive the Joanna Davenport Poster Presentation Prize, and the presenter will be awarded a monetary prize and a free membership in NAKPEHE for the coming year. The Joanna Davenport Poster Presentation Prize will be awarded at a special reception following the Delphine Hanna Lecture.

In addition to this session, we hope there will be time for doctoral students to meet together in a less formal setting to discuss their common concerns. Our hope is to establish a connection between similar doctoral programs (and their students) and thereby establish a mechanism for communication between students with similar or supportive research directions. The structure and philosophical direction of the NAKPEHE organization offers a positive interdisciplinary theme that encourages sharing within and across specialty areas; and welcomes new ideas and insights from differing perspectives. There will be numerous social opportunities for the doctoral students to interact with the NAKPEHE members attending the conference at a golf outing and a tennis outing, as well as at meal functions.


If you have any specific questions related to doctoral student involvement, please feel free to contact me directly (fiorenle@mail.armstrong.edu or phone 912-921-5884). If you would like specific conference information, please contact Jimmy Ishhee (jishee@twu.edu, or by phone 516-877-4272), or visit the NAKPEHE web site (www.nakpehe.org).

We hope to see you in Florida!
