    Dear Colleagues,

    The Behavioral Science & Policy Association (BSPA) invites nominations for two awards.  

    The first award is for its annual Publication Award for innovation in Behavioral Policy.  BSPA's Behavioral Policy publication award recognizes research that advances rigorous application and development of behavioral/social science to policy and practice in public, private and non-profit sectors.  Its goal is to encourage work that has potential to improve the quality of life of individuals and/or organizations.  We will consider all research published, in journals or as books, in the years 2018-2020.  The date must be the in-print date rather than the online date. You may send nominations (including self-nominations) via an email to the following address: awards@behavioralpolicy.org.  Please write BSPA Publication Award Nomination in the subject line. Note that you are allowed to nominate your own work.  

    The second award is for BSPA's New Investigator Award. BSPA's New Investigator award recognizes an early‐career scholar who received his or her doctoral degree in the last five years, so no earlier than 2019. The award will recognize a scholar whose body of work has advanced the rigorous application and development of behavioral/social science to policy and practice in public, private and/or nonprofit sectors.   You may send nominations via an email to the following address:  awards@behavioralpolicy.orgPlease write "BSPA New Investigator Nomination" in the subject line.  Include in the email the name of the nominated scholar and up to 250 words explaining how his or her work has contributed to behavioral science and policy. Please also attach the young scholar's CV to your nomination email. Note that you may nominate yourself or others.

    Todd Rogers (Professor of Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government.) is chairing this year's Awards Committee.  The deadline for submitting a nomination is March 26, 2021.  Winner(s) will be announced at BSPA's virtual conference, May 6-7, 2021.   

    Many thanks for your consideration, 

    Sim Sitkin & Craig Fox (co-Presidents, BSPA)
    Todd Rogers (Chair, 2021 Publication Award & New Investigator Award committee)
