Academy of Social Sciences: Call for SPA nominations for new Fellows

The SPA is a member of the Academy of Social Sciences. In recent years we have successfully nominated a number of SPA members to become Academicians. This is a mark of distinction and denotes an outstanding contribution to the study and/or practice of social policy. The SPA can make 10 nominations per year.

We have been invited to submit nominations for the next round of selection for new Fellows.

At this stage, all we need is:

  • contact details for nominee
  • short CV (no more than 2 pages)
  • brief outline of case (academic excellence and contribution to social science)
  • your name(s) and contact details

The key criteria are: ‘a leading figure in their field and have already left a clear mark on it’ and ‘has furthered social science’

Self-nominations are not possible.

Applications should be sent to the SPA Hon. Secretary, Tina Haux (T. by Friday 29th of April 2016. All nominations will be considered by the SPA Executive. For those supported, a full application (in AcSS format) will then be finalised in discussion with the supporter(s). Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
