Distinguished Scholar Award

The Distinguished Scholar Award is given for lifetime contributions to international theory. Ideal nominees will have made significant advances in theorizing world politics that transcend areas of specialization within international studies. They will also have superlative records of service and mentorship within the wider international-studies community. Nominees should be members of the International Studies Association. The winner will be honored at the ISA Annual Convention.

Nominations must be accompanied by (1) a supporting letter of no more than a single page and (2) a curriculum vitiate. All materials must be received by the Treasurer by May 1st, 2016. Past nominees will be re-considered in subsequent years.

The recipient of the award will be determined by the Executive Committee of the Theory Section. The Committee reserves the right not to make an award in any given year.
