American Psychological Association Invites Nominations for AIDS Leadership Awards

The American Psychological Association is inviting nominations for its Psychology and AIDS Leadership Award.

Two awards are granted annually, one in the category of Emerging Leader and one in the category of Distinguished Leader. The following categories are used to examine each candidate's work and qualifications for receiving an award. Successful candidates will have made significant contributions in one or more of the following areas:

1) Policy/Advocacy: This category recognizes individuals who have demonstrated outstanding effort and leadership in policy/advocacy-related activities that improve the welfare of people living with or affected by HIV/AIDS, and/or whose work improves the delivery of prevention services to individuals and communities affected by HIV/AIDS.

2) Research: This category recognizes individuals who have demonstrated outstanding effort and leadership in the conduct, dissemination, and translation of high-quality research in the areas of HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment/care, and/or policy.

3) Service Provision: This category recognizes individuals who have demonstrated outstanding effort and leadership in the delivery of psychological services to people living with or affected by HIV/AIDS, and/or the delivery of technical or support services to community agencies that provide a range of HIV/AIDS-related services to individuals and communities affected by HIV/AIDS.

4) Teaching/Mentoring: This category recognizes individuals who have demonstrated outstanding effort and leadership in educating psychologists or students in psychology about HIV/AIDS practice, research, and/or policy. 

To be eligible, nominees should be an "emerging" or "distinguished" leader in one or more of the above areas. Emerging leaders are psychologists who have received their doctorate within the past ten years, have made substantial contributions to the field of HIV/AIDS, and show promise of an extensive, influential career. Distinguished leaders are psychologists who have worked for ten years or more after receiving their doctorate. They should have a longstanding influence on HIV/AIDS issues, should be recognized leaders in the field, and must be a current member of APA.
