The Gordon Allport Intergroup Relations Prize

The Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues is proud to announce the Gordon Allport Intergroup Relations Prize honoring the memory of the late Dr. Gordon W. Allport, a founder and past president of SPSSI.


Entries must be works published during the calendar year preceding the year of submission. For the annual award, submissions are limited to articles, chapters, or other works published in their primary form (e.g., appearing in print for print journals or books or online for online-only journals or other volumes) with a formal publication date within the prior year. Please note that an individual or group may only submit one paper to SPSSI awards (including the Allport, Klineberg, and Dissertation Awards) per award year (January 1 - December 31).  All entries must be submitted in English for consideration.  


An award of $1000 is given to "the best paper or article of the year on intergroup relations" - a field about which Professor Allport cared deeply. Originality of the contribution, whether theoretical or empirical, will be given special weight. The research area of intergroup relations includes such dimensions as age, gender, and socioeconomic status, as well as ethnicity.


Apply online now!  Online submissions are the preferred method.  Please limit the number and size of files uploaded when applying online.   


This is an annual award.  Applications must be received by June 15th. Winners will be notified by October 15th. 

Sponsored by: The Gordon W. Allport Memorial Fund of Harvard University and SPSSI.
