|Awards of the Psychonomic Society|
The Psychonomic Society provides a range of awards with the aim of recognizing individuals who have made outstanding contributions to advancing cognitive science. These awards align with the Society's strategic goals in leadership, early career development, and scientific research. Each year, the Society recognizes its members and promising students with the following awards and honors:
Each August, the Publications Committee will ask the editor of each journal to select the best paper that was published in journal in the last year. The selected first authors of those papers will be honored at the Annual Meeting and receive a monetary award.
The Psychonomic Society will confer scientific awards each year upon young scientists who have made significant contributions to scientific psychology early in their careers.
Each year, the Psychonomic Society will give up to 10 Member Select-Speaker Awards for Members (not Fellows) of the Society. Each Awardee will present his/her research as a spoken talk rather than a poster at the Annual Meeting.
Each year, the Psychonomic Society will give up to 15 Graduate Travel Awards for Student Members of the Society. Each Awardee will receive a travel stipend of $1,000.
New in 2017, the Psychonomic Society will give up to 5 J. Frank Yates Student Travel Awards for Student Members of the Society who are in underrepresented populations. Each Awardee will receive a travel stipend of $1,000.
Two awards will be given to qualified candidates from any area of the Psychonomic Society who have had a presentation accepted at the annual meeting, to facilitate networking with two senior scientists at the annual meeting.
