Award - Recipients receive $400 and a plaque and will be invited to share their teaching/mentoring experiences at an upcoming SPSSI conference and in the newly created Teaching and Learning Newsletter Column. Eligibility - For both award categories, nominees should be persons who have made substantial contributions to students in the psychological study of social issues. To be eligible, an individual must have been teaching and/or mentoring students for at least 10 years.
