As part of our commitment to encouraging and supporting coaching psychology research, the Special Group in Coaching Psychology offers a Student Project Award.
Submissions for this award can be made by the person who has completed the research study or by a third party who wishes to recommend the individual for the Research Award. Nominations will only be accepted for named individuals.
The award will be made to the person whose research is deemed to make the most valuable contribution to the field of coaching psychology (a high number of submissions may result in more than one award representing different levels of study: undergraduate, master’s and doctoral level research projects). Innovation will be considered alongside scientific rigour in the conception, design and analysis of the study. The award winner will be selected by an Awards Committee whose decision is final.
Nominations should consist of a succinct summary of the project (approximately 2,000 words) with a clear indication of what was achieved. The judges reserve the right to request data to substantiate the findings reported. Nominations should also state why the project is worthy of consideration for the Student Project Award.
The project must be complete, represent the independent work of the student and be accompanied by a reference from the student’s supervisor.
Please note that individuals will not be considered for more than one SGCP award in any one year.
