The Michael Harris Bond Award for Early Research Contributions

Michael Harris Bond has worked in Asia for almost four decades. To commemorate his many significant contributions to Asian social psychology, a group of his friends and former students have set up an endowment fund with AASP for the Michael Harris Bond Award for Early Research Contributions. One award will be given every two years. Eligibility criteria for the award are as follows:

  • The awardee can be of any nationality, but must be based in Asia (broadly defined, including Australasia) at least for the last three years.
  • He/she must have obtained his/her Ph.D. within eight years from the closing date for the current round of nominations.
  • He/she has made significant contributions to Asian social psychology, broadly defined as psychological research on social processes in the Asian context, of a basic and/or applied nature.
  • He/she will receive a certificate for the award, as well as the sum of US $1,500 and a waiver of the registration fee to attend the forthcoming biannual conference of AASP, at which he/she will deliver a state-of-the-art lecture. The awardee must attend the conference to receive the award in Seoul.
  • The awardee will be invited to write a review that summarizes his/her research contributions and their implications for future research, to be published in the Asian Journal of Social Psychology after being reviewed.

A guideline for nomination and submission deadline will be announced later.
