The Psychonomic Society Early Career Award was established as an annual award to honor the distinguished research accomplishments of our early career members and fellows. Each year, up to four awardees will be named. One nominee, whose research is closest to the areas of perception and attention, will receive the Steven Yantis Early Career Award. They will be recognized at the annual meeting and will receive both a glass and a cash award ($2,500). In addition, the awardees’ airfare to the meeting will be paid. The 2015 Annual Meeting will be held in Chicago, Illinois on November 19-22.
Nominations are now being solicited for 2015. Please click here to submit your nomination. Nominations close on March 31, 2015. Nominees selected for this year’s awards will be notified by May 15, 2015.
The Governing Board established the following procedures for selecting the awardees.
- The nominee must be a Member or Fellow of the Psychonomic Society.
- The nominee must have completed their highest degree (typically PhD) no more than 10 years before the nomination date.
Nominations are made by current Members, Fellows, or Emeritus Members of the Psychonomic Society.
