Outstanding Research Publication Award

Description

The AAMFT Research and Education Foundation annually confers up to two awards to recognize a published article, monograph, book chapter or book that represents an outstanding scholarly achievement in family therapy research. Outstanding scholarly achievement is construed broadly to include a variety of methods and inquiry (quantitative, qualitative, or conceptual), and a variety of findings, including those that confirm previous work, challenge previous work, or generate new areas of inquiry.

Process

This award may be self-nominated or nominated by a third party and at least one applicant must be a member of AAMFT. Nominator must submit the article along with a written statement (500 words max) of why the article should be selected.

Letter of Recommendation

All self-nominations require a letter of recommendation to be submitted with materials.

Award

The award consists of:

  • An engraved plaque presented at our Annual Conference;
  • Reimbursement of up to $500 per recipient for travel to the Annual Conference; and
  • The conference registration fee will also be waived for the award recipient(s).

*The AAMFT Foundation will reimburse up to the total of $500 for economy class airfare, transportation to/from airport/hotel, meals per AAMFT allowances for the one day of the ceremony, and one night's hotel stay at one of the AAMFT conference hotels (at the special discounted rate) for the night of the ceremony. You must submit itemized receipts upon your return from the conference. Alcohol will not be reimbursed.

How to apply:  In order to quality for this award, interested candidates must complete an online application.  

Note: The AAMFT Annual Conference registration fee will be waived for all award recipients. In order to avoid the perception of a conflict of interest, anyone who is on the AAMFT, the AAMFT Foundation, or AAMFT sponsored payroll is ineligible to be considered for an award so long as that financial relationship exists.  All award recipients must be members of AAMFT with the exception of those receiving the Excellence in Media award, and at least one author of the Outstanding Research Publication award must be a member.
