The Award for Distinguished Contributions to Research in Public Policy is given to a psychologist who has made a distinguished empirical and/or theoretical contribution to research in public policy, either through a single extraordinary achievement or a lifetime of work. This contribution may consist of such factors as research leading others to view specific national policies differently; research demonstrating the importance of the application of psychological methods and theory to public policy; or research clarifying the ways in which scientific knowledge of human behavior informs public policy.

Morse, PhD (Chair); M. Dolores Cimini, PhD; Toni Antonucci, PhD; Faye Z. Belgrave, PhD; and Mark L. Hatzenbuehler, PhD. (PsycINFO Database Record
