NCSS Research Awards

National Council for the Social Studies presents three research awards designed to recognize substantive scholarly inquiry in social studies education.

NCSS International Assembly

The International Assembly provides a forum for collaboration and interchange of ideas among NCSS members from the United States and foreign countries. The Assembly promotes linkages among NCSS educators to enhance professional development, to enrich social studies learning, and to share research, learning activities, and teaching methods with global perspectives. The Assembly conducts its own program and business meeting during the NCSS Annual Conference.

College and University Faculty Assembly

CUFA consists of higher education faculty members, graduate students, and others interested in working with social educators such as social scientists, historians, and philosophers. As well as being an advocacy organization for social studies education, CUFA members provide a forum for communication among professional educators, and examine social studies from a theoretical and research perspective. CUFA conducts its own program and business meeting during the NCSS Annual Conference.

Annual dues: $60, students $15.

NCSS Associated Groups

Social studies educators have organized themselves into formal subgroups of NCSS, such as local school district social studies supervisors, state social studies specialists, international educators, and college and university faculty members. Other groups, in partnership with NCSS, provide services and professional development opportunities to NCSS members.
