The Constance McCullough Award, which carries a monetary prize of US$4,000, is awarded annually to assist a member of the International Reading Association in the investigation of reading-related problems and to encourage international professional development activities that are carried out in countries outside North America. This award represents a specific means for working toward as many as three articulated goals of the Association: advocacy, professional development, and emerging global issues.
