The Robert A. Dahl Award honors an untenured scholar who has produced scholarship of the highest quality on the subject of democracy.
The award is presented at the APSA Annual Meeting and carries a cash prize of $750.
Nominations and self-nominations close at 12:00am EST on Friday, February 14, 2020.
Non-ladder faculty members and junior tenure-track faculty at universities and colleges are eligible for the Dahl Award, as are scholars at nonprofit organizations and think tanks, and independent scholars. Scholarship eligible for the Dahl Award includes books, papers, reports, and articles on the subject of democracy.
You may submit one item per nomination: one book, one article, one paper. You will have the opportunity to upload other supporting documents through this form, such as letters of support for a nominee, or a personal statement if you are making a self-nomination. If you are nominating a book for the Dahl Award, the individual making the nomination is responsible for contacting the publisher and having copies sent to the award committee.
