LIFE Outstanding Alumni Award

In 2012 LIFE received the APA Board of Educational Affairs Award to Advance Interdisciplinary Education and Training in Psychology.

It was decided to use the prize money to establish an annual award for LIFE alumni recognizing continued excellence in interdisciplinary developmental science post PhD. This early career award is focused specifically on the continued realization of the objectives of LIFE in the candidate's independent research career.
