Carolyn Payton Early Career Award
The Carolyn Payton Early Career Award is sponsored by APA Div. 35, Section I (the Psychology of Black Women).
The applicant must be no more than 10 years postdoctorate, and the submitted work (article, book chapter or book) must be published. Although a submission need not focus exclusively on black women and girls, the specific concerns of black women and girls must be a focal point of the submission.
Papers may be theoretically or empirically (qualitative or quantitative) based. Each submission will be evaluated on its creativity and must distinguish itself as making a major contribution to the understanding of the role of gender in the lives of black women. If there are multiple authors, the applicant must be the first author. A $500 prize will be awarded.
Self-nominations are encouraged. To be considered for an award, please send a cover letter with contact information and electronic copy (PDF preferred) of the scholarly work.
Please submit applications to Tiffany Williams.
