The Early Achievement Award
Established in 2009, the PAA Early Achievement Award recognizes the career of a promising scholar who is a member of PAA. The award will be given biennially in even years to scholars who have made distinguished contributions to population research during the first ten years after receipt of the Ph.D. Such contributions may be original research published as articles or books, significant newly collected data, or a public policy achievement that broadens the impact of demography. Nominees should exemplify the highest standards of professional conduct.
The Early Achievement award should not be confused with the Clifford C. Clogg award. The Early Achievement award recognizes the contributions of PAA members who have made distinguished contributions to population research during the first ten years after receipt of the Ph.D. The Clogg award recognizes mid-career scholars who received their Ph.D. between ten and twenty years ago.
This award consists of a cash prize and a certificate.
