Description

About the Award

Started in 2011, the Distinguished Scholar Award recognizes the broad scope and potentially integrative nature of scholarship in personality and social psychology. It honors a scholar who has made distinctively valuable research contributions across his or her career in areas that expand the core of social and personality research and/or integrates different topics in the discipline in significant ways. The award was established to recognize the breadth of personality and social psychology and ensure that SPSP recognizes distinguished scholarly contributions beyond the prototypic topic areas.
 
Recipients of this award receive a $1000 honorarium and accompanying plaque, which are presented at the annual Awards Ceremony held at the SPSP Annual Convention. In addition, travel and registration to the convention are provided, where the recipient will give an address in a special plenary session (along with the Block Award and Campbell Award).
