Psychonomic Society Early Career Award

The Psychonomic Society will confer scientific awards upon young scientists who have made significant contributions to scientific psychology early in their careers. Each year the Society will name not more than four awardees. One nominee, whose research is closest to the areas of perception and attention, will receive the Steven Yantis Early Career Award. The awardees will be formally recognized at the Annual Meeting, and will receive a plaque or framed award document and a cash prize, initially set to $2,500 plus airfare to the Annual Meeting. The names of awardees will be displayed permanently on the Society’s web site.

  • Awardees must have completed their highest degree (typically the PhD) no more than ten years before the year in which the award is given.
  • The nominee must be a Member or Fellow of the Psychonomic Society.
