Best Dissertation Award
The International Society of Political Psychology first awarded the Best Dissertation Award at the 2008 Annual Meeting in Paris.
All Ph.D. dissertations within the field of political psychology are eligible for consideration, regardless of home discipline. Dissertations should represent an independent piece of research that is the sole work of the author and gains the highest degree at the author’s university.
Nominations are due by Feb. 15, 2013, for dissertations completed and successfully defended between Jan. 1, 2012, and Dec. 31, 2012. Nominees must be current ISPP members.
Nominations should be submitted electronically and must include a one-page abstract (300 word), a 10-page (3,000 word) summary of the dissertation, and a letter of recommendation from the thesis adviser or committee member, all in English.
Send nominations to the 2013 Award Committee Chair:
The award committee will request a copy of the full dissertation for those selected to participate in the second round evaluation. If the dissertation is written in a language other than English, the full dissertation may be submitted in the original language for the second round evaluation, and at least one qualified reader fluent in that language will be included as a committee member for the second round evaluation.
Please forward this announcement to Directors of Graduate Studies at your institution, and any other persons to whom you think it might be of interest.
