The award includes a certificate, an invitation to give an address at the upcoming APA convention and a complimentary one-year membership in Div. 34 for the following calendar year.
Nominees need not be current members of Div. 34, but their innovative and substantial research and/or practice should clearly reflect the division’s aims and focus on environmental, population and/or conservation psychology. Nominees do not have to currently hold an academic position; individuals working in nonprofit organizations, governmental agencies or other practice-oriented positions may be considered for the award.
