The International Reading Association (IRA) Esther Zolt Academic Research Grant was established in memory of Esther Zolt, a life-long elementary classroom teacher. The grant may be given annually for a research study on the classroom implementation of In2Books or an e-Pals project and the Common Core State Standards
that inspires others to improve teaching and learning in innovative ways. This grant is for US $2,500 (sponsored by Nina Zolt and Miles Gilburne).
All applicants must be IRA members. Applicants may apply for more than one IRA research award. However, applicants are limited to one research award per year. The submission deadline is November 15, 2012.
The 2013 award recipient(s) will be encouraged to attend the awards ceremony held at IRA’s 58th Annual Convention in San Antonio, Texas, on April 19-22, 2013.
