Call for Nominations for the Henry Tomes Awards for the Advancement of Ethnic Minority Psychology
Funded by the member associations of the Council of National Psychological Associations for the Advancement of Ethnic Minority Interests, the Tomes Awards honor psychologists from each ethnic minority community — African-American/Black; American Indian/Alaska Native; Asian-American/Pacific Islander; Latina(o)/Hispanic American — on a rotating basis.
The American Psychological Association's Committee on Ethnic Minority Affairs (CEMA) is seeking nominations for two new members to begin three-year terms of service on Jan. 1, 2016. To fulfill its mandate for ethnic representation and its commitment to gender equity, the two vacant slates are for the following: Self-identified Asian-American/Pacific Islander female and male psychologists.
CEMA welcomes the nomination of candidates who possess knowledge and expertise of other diverse populations (e.g., disability, early career, national origin, sexual orientation, etc.). In addition, special consideration will be given to those applicants whose education, training, experiences and/or expertise represents basic and/or applied areas of psychological science/research. Terms of service are Jan. 1, 2016 to Dec. 31, 2018.
