Jewish Women's Caucus


Eligibility and Nominations:

Awarded by the AWP Jewish Women's Caucus

Purpose: Intended to recognize, further the development of, and honor distinguished scholarship in the field of the psychology of Jewish Women.

Eligibility: Theoretical papers, creative projects and research papers will be considered. Papers which have been submitted for publication or presented at a professional meeting are eligible, as well as papers which have been previously published or accepted for publication.

Submission: Entries should be written in APA style. Send four (4) hard copies of the paper or project and a self-addressed stamped postcard to the address below. A cover sheet should accompany each submission and include the author’s name, address, telephone number and email address. The submissions will be reviewed using a standard blind review procedure so the author’s identifying information should not appear on the submission itself.

Criteria: Papers will be judged on the basis of theoretical creativity, quality of the project, clarity and style of presentation, and importance and relevance of the topic to the psychology of Jewish women.

Award: A $200 prize will be awarded. The award will be announced at the American Psychological Association Conference. The winner is asked to be an active member of AWP, and to present her work as an ‘invited address’ at the next year’s Association for Women in Psychology Conference.

To contribute to the award: Please make checks payable to AWP earmarked "JWC Award." JWC award funds are held in a socially conscious, no-load mutual fund. The JWC Award was established by the family of Kayla Weiner, to honor her work in the areas of Judaism, feminism and psychology.
