Children’s Literature in Education Emerging Scholar Award (CLEESA) 

During its long history, the journal has often benefitted from the refreshing ideas and original approaches of young and new scholars in the field of children’s literature.
In the current academic climate, the Humanities are under financial pressure in various countries. The competition for (post)doctoral scholarships is high and tenured positions are becoming rare.
CLE, with the support of its publisher, Springer, is therefore launching the CLEESA, which will run annually. The prestigious winner will receive a prize of $500 and their article will be published exclusively in Children’s Literature in Education, with an appropriate acknowledgement of its award-winning status. Excellent essays that do not win the award will still be considered for publication in CLE.
