APSA-PSA International Partnerships Award
Nominations for the 2024 APSA Awards have now closed.
The APSA-PSA International Partnerships Award honors political scientists engaged in collaborative and productive cross-national partnerships that make a significant contribution to the discipline in the areas of teaching, research, or civic engagement. The award carries a cash prize of £2,000, funded jointly by the American Political Science Association (APSA) & the Political Studies Association (PSA) of the United Kingdom.
We are looking for entries which demonstrate tangible benefits to the Political Studies discipline from a clear collaborative endeavor of two or more individuals and groups. Your entry should include a specific output:
- Scholarly (e.g., a peer-reviewed and published journal article, special issue or text)
- Pedagogic (e.g., a teaching resource, set of open-source teaching materials, guides or curricula content)
- Policy-orientated (e.g., a policy paper, policy briefs or networking)
- To benefit civil society (e.g., blog or vlogs, project-based initiatives, civic engagement).
The award will be judged by a joint APSA and PSA panel and will be awarded a cash prize of £2000.
- Self-nominations are permitted.
- Collaborative partnerships require a minimum of two individuals and must involve at least two scholars residing in two different countries.
- Anyone applying for the award who is based at a UK higher education institution must be a member of either PSA or APSA. Anyone applying for the award from outside the UK does not need to be a member of either association.
- Applicants, especially those for partnerships between countries other than USA-UK, are encouraged to spotlight existing connections or potential engagement with APSA and PSA members.
- The collaborative partnership award is intended to recognize a significant single collaborative contribution achieved in 2022 or 2023 rather than the cumulative work of a career; scholars of all levels are eligible for the award, including those early or mid-career.
- Interdisciplinary endeavors that draw on collaborations with other social scientists and/or colleagues in the arts and humanities are also welcome.
- Collaborators are also encouraged to embed principles of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion within their overall approach.
