The Witkin-Okonji Award honours the memory of Herman Witkin and Michael Ogbulu Okonji, early pioneers in the field of collaborative cross-cultural research. The purpose of the fund is to provide financial awards to IACCP members to facilitate their attendance at international congresses, with particular concern for members from countries or areas of the world that would otherwise not be represented at a particular congress of the Association.
Only those who have current (2020) IACCP membership are eligible to apply. Applications are judged on scientific contribution to the congress, geographic area, relative level of need, and status of the applicant. Preference will be given to new professionals and advanced graduate students, and to those who have also been IACCP members prior to 2020.
Applications for the 2020 awards are invited and should be submitted to Colleen Ward, President-Elect of IACCP, via this form. Applications must be received by April 10, 2020.
