This award was created to honor the contributions of a senior person in the field of psychology who has made significant contributions in research related to ethnic minority populations. Candidates for this award should have been in the field 15 or more years, and have made scholarly contributions in writing, publishing, and disseminating information on ethnic minority populations and issues, thereby substantively contributing to the current understanding of ethnic minorities. Nominations are generated from the Division 45 membership and the Awards Committee. The Executive Committee of the Division reviewed the nominations, and votes on the candidates during its midwinter meeting. Awards are presented yearly at the American Psychological Association Annual Convention. Each award recipient is honored at a reception during the convention and receives an engraved plaque.
