The Goodnow Award honors service to the community of teachers, researchers, and public servants who work in the many fields of politics.
The award is presented at the APSA Annual Meeting and the recipient receives an engraved crystal bowl. Frank J. Goodnow, the first president of the American Political Science Association, a pioneer in the development of judicial politics, and former president of Johns Hopkins University, is an exemplar of the public service and volunteerism that this award represents.
- Eligibility: Self-nominations are accepted. Nominees do not have to be members of APSA, affiliated with an institution in the United States, or an American citizen in order to be considered for an award.
The Goodnow Award can be awarded not simply to a person who has performed distinguished service to political science, but to groups, or public and private organizations who have played a role in the development of the political science profession and the building of APSA.
