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.
Applications are judged on scientific contribution to the congress, geographic area, relative level of need, and status of the applicant, with preference given to new professionals and advanced graduate students.
Applications for the 2010 awards are invited and should be submitted to Heidi Keller, the current President of IACCP. They may be submitted through this web site (see sidebar, right). Applications must be received by April 15, 2010.
