SIOP Seeks Nominations for Dunnette Prize for Work on Individual Differences


The Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP) is currently seeking nominations for the Dunnette Prize, honoring Professor Marvin D. Dunnette. It carries a cash award of $50,000.

The Dunnette Prize is intended to recognize living individuals who have made programmatic, significant, and lasting contributions to understanding the casual nature of individual differences on behavior and performance. Nominations are sought from all sub-disciplines of Psychology as well as other disciplines involving the study of individual differences in relation to human behavior.

Professor Dunnette devoted virtually his entire academic and professional life to the assessment, prediction, and explanation of individual differences in human behavior and performance. He believed that advances in basic research, applied research and applications in practice inform each other. Accordingly, nominees who have made important contributions in any of those areas will be considered.?

Nominees need not be members of SIOP. However, nominations must be made by SIOP members. Self-nominations are welcome. If a SIOP co-nominator is needed, please contact Dr. Milton Hakel at The deadline for submitting applications is August 31, 2017.

The Dunnette Prize recipient(s) will be recognized at the 2018 SIOP Annual Conference held in Chicago, Illinois on April 19-21, 2018. Recipient(s) are expected to give an invited address about the prize winning contributions at the conference.
