Awards
William K Estes Early Career Award
The Society for Mathematical Psychology presents an award annually for exceptional published research in the field of mathematical psychology by an early career investigator. Previously known as the “New Investigator Award”, it was renamed after William K Estes in 2009, recognizing his contributions to our Society and the field of mathematical psychology generally. The award is intended to include individuals who are either students or are no more than six years beyond the Ph.D. at the time of nomination. The awardee need not be a member of the Society.
