Eligible candidates can be academics and researchers, including those in retirement, in any area of psychology. Nominees do not need to be BPS members but they must be resident in the UK. 

Award winners will have an outstanding record of personal achievements and have significant contributions to the advancement of psychological knowledge. Contributions to the work of the Society would also be considered appropriate.

The award will confer:

  • BPS Life Membership;
  • £1000 to be spent on furthering an area of research of the nominee's choice, and;
  • A commemorative certificate (which will be presented to the recipient at the Society's Annual Conference).

The call for nominations is now open.  The closing date for nomination is Friday 29 April 2016.

Further details can be obtained from the Board Administrator.
