Award for Early Career Contributions to Cross-Cultural Psychology
The International Association for Cross-Cultural Psychology (IACCP) has established an award for Early Career Contributions to Cross-Cultural Psychology in order to honor researchers at an early stage of their careers for their contributions to knowledge generation, dissemination and application for cross-cultural psychology — primarily through research, but also through teaching of cross-cultural psychology and service to the field. The award consists of a certificate and $1,500 grant to contribute to the cost of attendance at the IACCP Congress and a waiver of the registration fee; acknowledgement of the recipient's contribution to cross-cultural psychology in a forum of IACCP; participation in a plenary presentation at the IACCP Congress; and an invitation for guest participation in a summer program with opportunities to interact with other early career researchers and PhD students. Eligible nominees are IACCP members who have received their doctorate no more than 10 years prior to the application due date. For instructions on how to apply, please contact Kwok Leung. The deadline for nominations is Nov. 15, 2013.
