Call for Nominations for the 2017 CPA - President’s New Researcher Awards

CPA PRESIDENT’S NEW RESEARCHER AWARDS GUIDELINES
 
These awards recognize the exceptional quality of the contribution of new researchers to psychological knowledge in Canada. Selection of award recipients is based on the examination of the applicant’s record of early career achievement. A maximum of three awards are conferred annually in diverse areas of psychology.
 
Eligible candidates must meet the following criteria
  1. Be a CPA member with five years or less post-graduate training experience (e.g., post-Masters, post-Ph.D.);
  2. Be within 5 years of completing their graduate degree (e.g., Masters, doctorate) and no longer enrolled as a student in a graduate program. Therefore a student who has graduated from a Masters program but is still in a doctorate program is not eligible for the award.
  3. Students enrolled in post-doctoral programs must be CPA members to be considered for the award (not student affiliates). 
The winners will receive a certificate and a $500 cash award that will be presented during the CPA Convention. The winner will also receive a year’s free membership and a free registration to attend the following CPA convention and participate in a symposium.
 
The review committee is composed of the President, the immediate past President, the President-elect, and the Chair of the Scientific Affairs Committee.
 
Submissions must be sent by October 15 and must include the candidate’s curriculum vitae (in PDF Format), a letter of nomination, and three letters of support written in the last calendar year by current CPA Fellows or Members. 
 
Submissions are directed preferably by email to:
