We are seeking nominations for new inductees as Distinguished Scholars of the Cambridge Center for Behavioral Studies.

The mission of the Distinguished Scholars is to support the advancement of elite graduate students on their journeys toward becoming leaders in behavioral science. In service of the mission of the Center, Distinguished Scholar volunteers collaboratively identify, explore, and execute projects under the guidance of established leaders, the Center Advisors and Trustees. The group was formed in response to the one of the Center’s primary goals: to improve the future of behavioral science by education and development of the next wave of behavioral scientists and practitioners. Student-initiated projects align with the Center’s other main goals: to create and deliver trustworthy information on high quality behavioral services and science around the world, and to promote global collaboration among behavioral organizations. Students also work in various capacities to support the Center, such as through volunteer efforts at Center conferences.

Master and doctoral level graduate students are nominated by their advisors for consideration of induction as Distinguished Scholars. In addition to above, we seek nominations of  potential Scholars who are aligned with Center’s overall mission: to use the science of human behavior to alleviate human suffering.

Nominations will be accepted now through Thursday, April 1, 2022. We cannot accept nominations after this date to ensure fairness of the screening and selection process.

If you would like to nominate a distinguished scholar, complete the nomination survey linked here. If you have never nominated a potential Scholar, or have not nominated one in recent years, we encourage you to do so.

Individuals will be made aware of their acceptance shortly before the ABAI Annual Convention at the end of May.

Please contact me with any questions.

My best regards,

Michael
