Nomination Deadline Extended for Two Awards

The nomination deadline for the new Graen Grant for Student Research on the Development of New Professional Knowledge Workers and the SIOP Distinguished Service Contributions Award has been extended to July 31, 2018.

The Graen Grant is an exciting new offering that provides support for research on knowledge economy workers. The grant requirements emphasize practical research applications and encourage the use of design thinking. The maximum award is $3,000 and the grant, which can be used in conjunction with other funding for a larger scale project, is open to SIOP student affiliates. Learn more about the Graen Grant here.

The Distinguished Service Contributions Award recognizes SIOP members who have given sustained, significant, and outstanding service to the organization. This is a particularly good way to recognize and celebrate the contributions of those who have served on committees, task forces, or as SIOP’s representative to other organizations. The award carries a $,1500 prize.

Learn more about the award here. Then reflect on the importance of volunteerism to SIOP, and nominate a colleague who has given generously of their time and talent in support of the organization and the profession.

Be sure to take advantage of this additional time to submit for the Graen Grant or to nominate a deserving colleague for the Distinguished Service Contributions Award. The end of the month will be here before you know it.
