Sepmeyer Award – Excellence in Credentials Evaluation Research

Sepmeyer Award – Excellence in Credentials Evaluation Research


In celebration of our upcoming 50th anniversary and the legacy of our Founder, Inez Sepmeyer, we are excited to be launching the annual Sepmeyer Award.


In furtherance of IERF’s mission, the Sepmeyer Research Grants have historically supported current or new research in the field. The annual Sepmeyer Award, however, is intended to honor achievements in credentials evaluation research, completed within the past year, which may come in the form of a conference presentation, newsletter article, or self-published resource (e.g., training videos, blogs, etc.).



All individuals / teams are eligible, regardless of institutional affiliation, citizenship and country of residence.


Note: Sepmeyer Awards are intended to recognize and encourage smaller, thoughtful pieces of research and resource material. For this reason, submissions of chapter books and e-books, websites, and databases are not eligible for consideration.



Submissions must be made by March 1, 2019. A single award of $1000 USD will be granted to the honoree(s).
