The Distinguished Early Career Contributions Award is given to an individual who has made distinguished contributions to the science and/or practice of I-O psychology within seven (7) years of receiving the PhD degree.
Nominees are considered for this award based on the following criteria:
The general nature of the nominee’s contributions to science and/or practice.
The most important contributions to science and/or practice.
The impact of the nominee’s contribution on the science and/or practice of I-O psychology, including the impact that the work has had on the work of students and colleagues.
The status of the nominee as a scientist and/or practitioner vis-à-vis other prominent scientists and/or practitioners in the field of I-O psychology.
Although the number of publications is an important consideration, more important is the quality of the publications and their impact on the field of I-O psychology.
The recipient of the award is given a plaque and a cash prize of $1,500. In addition, the recipient is invited to give an address that relates to his or her contribution at the subsequent meeting of SIOP.
