Richard Moreland Dissertation of the Year Award

This award honors a recent dissertation by someone whose research on small groups is especially promising. The winner is announced and the prize is conferred at the annual American Psychological Association Convention. Included in the award are $1,000, a plaque, and a three-year membership in the division. Only dissertations that were completed during the prior calendar year are eligible, but the research described in those dissertations can explore any group phenomenon, using any methodology to investigate any type of group. A committee reviews all the abstracts and selects three finalists, who then submit complete copies of their dissertations for the committee’s evaluation.

A five-page, double-spaced abstract of your work should be sent to Richard Moreland, PhD, by Dec. 31 (every year).
