2020 Dunnette Prize Open for Nominations

SIOP Seeks Nominations for the $50,000 Dunnette Prize for Work on Individual Differences 

The Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP), Division 14 of the APA and an organizational affiliate of APS, and the SIOP Foundation are currently seeking nominations for the Dunnette Prize, honoring Professor Marvin D. Dunnette. It carries a cash award of $50,000.

The Dunnette Prize, one of the most prestigious awards in the field of psychology, is available from SIOP. It is intended to recognize living individuals who have made programmatic, significant, and lasting contributions to understanding the casual nature of individual differences on behavior and performance. Nominations are sought from all sub-disciplines of psychology as well as other disciplines involving the study of individual differences in relation to human behavior.

Professor Dunnette devoted virtually his entire academic and professional life to the assessment, prediction, and explanation of individual differences in human behavior and performance.  He believed that advances in basic research, applied research, and applications in practice inform each other. Accordingly, nominees who have made important contributions in any of those areas will be considered. Learn more about Dr. Dunnette in his SIOP presidential memoir.

SIOP membership is not required for nominees. However, nominations must be made by SIOP members. Self-nominations are welcome. If a SIOP co-nominator is needed, please contact Dr. Milton Hakel at mhakel@bgsu.edu. The deadline for submitting applications is June 30, 2019.

The Dunnette Prize recipient(s) will be recognized at the 2020 SIOP Annual Conference held in Austin, Texas on April 23-25, 2020. Recipient(s) are expected to give an invited address about the prize-winning contributions at the conference.
