This post reflects awards reported since the previous roundup post.

The Blog of the APA features a regular roundup of awards won by APA members. The APA tracks awards won by members for publication in its Proceedings and Addresses.  Information about awards is compiled from two sources: members who notify the national office directly about their awards, and publications that list award recipients from time to time.

You are encouraged to notify the national office of any awards you have received, so that these may be included in a future roundup post and in the Proceedings and Addresses. Notices should be sent to Erin Shepherd at erinshep@udel.edu.

If you would like links added to this post or changed, please contact Jeremy Cushing at jeremycushing@apaonline.org. Notices of awards omitted from this list should be sent to Erin Shepherd at erinshep@udel.edu.
