Award for Research on Women and Gender


APA Division 35 (Psychology of Women) is pleased to announce its solicitation for the 1997 Award for Psychological Research on Women and Gender. This competition is open to graduate and undergraduate students.

Eligible research must be relevant in some significant way to women's lives, or more generally, to the emerging psychological understanding of gender role influences on human behavior. Jointly authored papers are acceptable, but the first author must have been a student at the time the research was done. Entries should be written in APA style. Papers that have been submitted for publication or presented at a professional meeting are eligible, along with papers that are unpublished or have been previously published or accepted for publication. Do not submit reprints or manuscripts with the authors' name embedded in them.

A $200 prize will be awarded for the best paper, and the winner will be given the opportunity to present his or her research at the 1998 Conference of the Association for Women in Psychology.
