The Bronislaw Malinowski Award is presented to an outstanding social scientist in recognition of efforts to understand and serve the needs of the world's societies and who has actively pursued the goal of solving human problems using the concepts and tools of social science during one's entire career. Each nomination should follow the criteria for selection set forth by the SfAA.
The nominees should be of senior status, widely recognized for their efforts to understand and serve the needs of the world through the use of social science. The nominees should be strongly identified with the social sciences. They may be within the academy or outside of it, but their contributions should have implications beyond the immediate, the narrowly administrative, or the political.
The Awardee should be willing and able to deliver an address at the annual meeting of the Society for Applied Anthropology. The nominees should include individuals who reside or work outside of the United States.
Nominations are valid for five years from the date of nomination. Remember that making a nomination requires more than just suggesting the name to a committee member. Please note the requirements spelled out above. This is an important award and deserves the attention of every member of our society.
Nominations should be sent to the Chair as soon as possible. The deadline for nominations is December 15. You might also encourage others to get involved in the nomination process by nominating someone else or furnishing a letter of support.
Please send all nominations to: Chair, Malinowski Award Committee, SfAA, P.O. Box 2436, Oklahoma City, OK 73101-2436. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
