COSSA is seeking nominations for the 2020 COSSA Public Impact Award, which recognizes individuals, groups, and/or organizations who are using social and behavioral science research to affect real change in society.
COSSA established the award in 2019, to celebrate the many ways social and behavioral science research is being used to achieve notable improvements in communities. The inaugural COSSA Public Impact Award was presented to The Lab @ DC in April 2019 in recognition of its work in improving programs and services to the citizens of the District of Columbia through methods and research in the social sciences.
Nominations may be submitted using this form. Self nominations are permitted. COSSA is committed to equal opportunity for all persons, without regard to race, color, religion, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, national origin, age, disability, veteran status, or other protected categories. COSSA seeks as diverse a pool of award nominations as possible, including a wide range of disciplines, institutional types, and geographic locations. Nominations are due by 5:00 pm EST on December 2, 2019.
Awardees will be chosen by the COSSA Board of Directors. The Award will be presented at a reception held in conjunction with COSSA’s annual Social Science Advocacy Day in Washington, DC in March 2020.
