The Department of Psychology at the University of Toronto is pleased to
announce the call for nominations for the 2014 inaugural TANG Prize for
Achievements in Psychology. As a Department at a public university, we
believe in furthering the science of Psychology in service of enhancing
human wellbeing. Applications are encouraged from
internationally-recognized scholars in Psychology or a closely-related
field who have shown creativity, and rigour in their approach and whose
record of achievement has left an indelible mark on the field. This award
has been made possible through generous support from the TANG Foundation.
The TANG Foundation is a charitable institution with the mandate to raise
awareness of the importance of psychological wellbeing in the world.

The recipient of the TANG Prize for Achievements in Psychology will be
awarded a cash prize of $100,000 CAD at a ceremony held on the University
of Toronto campus on November 12, 2014. During the campus visit, the
recipient will be asked to meet with University of Toronto students and to
hold a public lecture.

Applicants should outline in no more than two pages the ways in which they
have a major impact on the progress of psychology, anywhere in the world,
particularly in its application to the psychological wellbeing of humanity.
This application letter should highlight how the applicant has contributed
to the science, practice, or application of Psychology as it pertains to
the understanding, promotion, restoration, or application of psychological
methods, research, and techniques in addressing challenges related to
wellbeing at the individual or community level. In addition to this
application letter, applications should also include a current CV.
Nomination packages (application letter and CV) should be submitted
electronically in one email by August 15, 2014 to
tangprize at psych.utoronto.ca. Applicants should also ask three referees, who
must be internationally acknowledged experts in the field, to send
reference letters directly to the Department via email to
tangprize at psych.utoronto.ca by August 30, 2014. Up to three additional
supporting letters of endorsement from individuals who have been directly
impacted by the applicant’s scholarly work and/or who have knowledge of the
direct impact of the applicant’s scholarly work can be sent to the same
email address by August 30, 2014.
