Div. 3 Early Career Awards
The Div. 3 Early Career Awards, formerly called the New Investigator Awards, have been presented since 1995 to honor outstanding new investigators. Each year the editors of each of the five sections of the Journal of Experimental Psychology are asked to nominate individuals based on the editors’ judgment of the most outstanding empirical papers published or accepted during that year that were authored by a new scholar (i.e., no more than three years post-PhD). The awards committee then makes recommendations to the Div. 3 executive board for final approval. Typically, but not always, there is one winner from each journal.
