SIAM Annual Awards

The ASPA Section on Intergovernmental Administration & Management (SIAM) is currently soliciting nominations for the section’s annual awards. The awards will be presented at the 2020 annual ASPA meeting in Anaheim, CA. Please consider submitting nominations or forwarding this call for nominations to your colleagues. Nominees and nominators need not be members of SIAM. The awards include the following:

Donald C. Stone Practitioner Award (recognizes outstanding practitioners for their contributions to intergovernmental management). The principle criteria for the Practitioner award include:

  • Significant contributions to the practice of intergovernmental relations over a substantial period of time.
  • Contributions that have made an impact on the practice of intergovernmental management as a whole rather than only on a specific organization, institution, or function.

Donald C. Stone Distinguished Scholar Award (recognizes distinguished scholars for their contributions to intergovernmental management). The principle criteria for the Distinguished Scholar Award include:

  • Significant contributions to the study of intergovernmental relations over a substantial period of time.
  • Contributions that have made an impact on the study of intergovernmental management as a whole rather than only on a specific organization, institution, or function.

Donald C. Stone Best Student Paper Award (recognizes the best paper on federalism and intergovernmental relations written by a graduate student in 2019).

  • The Best Student Paper Award comes with $250 to support travel to the ASPA conference (April 3-7, 2020).
  • Nominations should include an electronic copy of the nominated paper.

Nominations should include the name and institutional affiliation of the nominee and of the nominator, a short statement explaining the nominee’s contributions to intergovernmental management commensurate with the criteria for the award (for the Practitioner and Scholar awards), and contact information for both the nominee and the nominator. Nominees and nominators need not be members of SIAM.
