Thomas M. Ostrom Award
Thomas M. Ostrom Award
Beginning in 1998, PMIG initiated an annual award to honor Tom Ostrom's memory. The Thomas M. Ostrom Award recognizes oustanding lifetime contributions to theory and research in the field of social cognition. The criteria for "contributions" are modeled after those so clearly exemplified in Tom's career. Therefore the Thomas M. Ostrom Award recognizes someone whose career manifests not only a record of significant and influential publications but also contributions to social cognition through training students, editing important volumes and journals, and facilitating collegial interaction through meetings and conferences. The recipient receives a plaque commemorating this recognition and is invited to give a talk at the PMIG meeting.
