Dear colleagues,

Please consider nominating an early career scholar in developmental
psychology for the Boyd McCandless Award! Details are below.




*Boyd McCandless Award*

Sponsored by APA’s Division 7 (Developmental Psychology),  the Boyd
McCandless Award <https://www.apadivisions.org/division-7/awards/mccandless>
recognizes a young scientist who has made a distinguished theoretical
contribution to developmental psychology, has conducted programmatic
research of distinction, or has made a distinguished contribution to the
dissemination of developmental science. The award is for continued efforts
rather than a single outstanding work.

Eligibility: Scientists who are within seven years of completion of the
doctoral degrees are eligible, and for the 2022 award (to be judged in
2021), nominees should have received their degrees in 2013 or later. In
special circumstances when the scientist has taken an extended leave of
absence (e.g., for his/her own serious health condition, for the birth or
care of his/her child, to care for an immediate family member who has a
serious health condition, etc.), one extra year of eligibility may be
granted. Any scientist wishing to be considered for an extra year of
eligibility should submit a letter explaining the circumstances to the
Chairs of the Award Committee along with official documentation of the

Application: The annual deadline is March 15.
