    Dear Careers Division Member,

    I hope you saw this call last week, but please note one important update: we have added a two year grace period for the eligibility for the Mid-Career Award in this inaugural year only. Nominations for graduation years starting in 2006 will be accepted. Next year, the eligibility requirement will revert to 12 years (2009 graduation year). Please see below for an updated call.

    You may have seen notification in the newsletter of our new awards: the Careers Division Best Published Paper Award and the Careers Division Mid-Career Award. It's time to submit your nominations!

    These awards recognize our membership for their scholarly achievement. The Best Published Paper Award goes to a paper published in the prior calendar year that contributes to the state of careers research by advancing novel ideas, challenging existing theory, or featuring innovative data or methods. Winning papers should promise to inspire future careers research. The Mid-Career Award goes to a scholar 10-12 years post-PhD whose portfolio of work suggests the candidate will make fundamental contributions to the way we think about careers, as well as contributions to the community of careers researchers. The recipients of this award must exhibit independent and original intellectual contribution to careers research.
