Lifetime Achievement Award

Research Board - Lifetime Achievement Award

This award recognises distinctive and exemplary contributions to psychological knowledge.


Academics and researchers, including those in retirement, in any area of psychology.

Nominees need not be members of the Society but they must be resident in the UK. It is expected that award winners will not only have an outstanding record of personal achievements but will have also made significant contributions to the advancement of psychological knowledge; contributions to the work of the Society would also be considered appropriate in this instance.


These should include:

  • A statement, up to 2000 words in length, detailing the nominee's achievements and the grounds for nomination;
  • A full CV, and;
  • The names and addresses of three potential referees (to include at least one current/former colleague of the nominee, who may be an employer such as a Head of Department, Dean etc.)


The award will confer:

  • Life Membership of the Society;
  • £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 Wednesday 26 April 2017.

Further details can be obtained from the Board Administrator.

Details of previous award winners are available from the History of Psychology Centre (HoPC).
