SRCD Outstanding Doctoral Dissertation Awards

Created in 2008, the SRCD Outstanding Doctoral Dissertation Awards are given to SRCD members for dissertations that are unusually noteworthy. SRCD is soliciting member nominations for the 2021 Outstanding Doctoral Dissertation Awards for dissertations completed during the years 2019-2020 (specifically between January 1, 2019 and December 31, 2020). These awards also come with a $500 honorarium.

Any SRCD member can make a nomination, which should include:

  1. a 3-page, single-spaced summary of the dissertation,
  2. an electronic link to the full dissertation,
  3. the nominee’s curriculum vitae, and
  4. a nomination letter

The letter from the nominator/mentor should explain why the dissertation is outstanding and merits the award. Please bear in mind that most dissertations are meritorious; the nomination letter must make the case as to why the nominated dissertation is unusually noteworthy in terms of the quality of the topic, the relevance to the field of developmental science, and the relevance to SRCD’s Strategic Goals. In addition, further qualifications of the nominee should be included, such as publications, placement (e.g., post-doc, Assistant Professor), and the long-term potential contributions to the field. 

All files must be in PDF format.

Nominations should be submitted electronically through the submission site
by September 4, 2020, 11:59pm ET.
