Griffith Awards

Two cash awards of $200 each plus engraved paperweights will be made in 2010 for the papers of greatest excellence, one in philosophy and one in psychology, presented at the annual conference. The winners are announced and the cash awards are presented at the business meeting that concludes the conference.

The rules for this competition state that applicants must either have received their Ph.D. no more than five years prior to the date of the annual meeting at which the paper is presented or must be current candidates for the Ph.D. All Griffith Award applicants must be either SSPP members or applicants for membership in SSPP. Only first or sole authors are eligible. If you or one of your students qualifies under the stated rules, the Council encourages submission of a paper.

Past Griffith and Junior Award Recipients

Prior to 1970, the Society presented Junior Awards. In 1970, the award was referred to as the Richard M. Griffith Memorial Junior Award, because the Richard M. Griffith Foundation provided funds for the award. Since 1971, the award has been called the Richard M. Griffith Memorial Award.
