The Michele Alexander Early Career Award For Scholarship and Service

The Michele Alexander Early Career Award for Scholarship and Service (Alexander Award) award was established in 2005 to recognize early career excellence in scholarship as well as in service. For this award, scholarship is defined in terms of substantive academic (theoretical, empirical, or applied) contributions to the psychological study of social issues, while service is defined as professional and/or community service.

This award is inspired in memory of Dr. Michele Alexander, a talented scholar and dedicated teacher who brought exceptional insight, passion, and commitment to social issues research. Dr. Alexander also gave generously to students, colleagues, and communities through voluntary service.
