The Boyd McCandless Award recognizes a young scientist who has made a distinguished theoretical contribution to developmental psychology, has conducted programmatic research of distinction, or has made a distinguished contribution to the dissemination of developmental science. The award is for continued efforts rather than a single outstanding work.

The award is presented by the membership of Div. 7 of the APA, and the award winner will be invited to address the following year’s meeting of the APA.

Congratulations Luke!
