If you are not eligible yourself, please consider nominating a promising junior scientist.

Call for Nominations: Psychonomic Society Early-Career Awards

The Governing Board of the Psychonomic Society voted in 2011 to establish 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. They will be recognized at the annual meeting and will receive a plaque and a cash award of $2,500. In addition, the awardees’ airfare to the meeting also will be paid. The 2014 Annual meeting will be held in Long Beach, CA on November 20-23.
