Special Group in Coaching Psychology

Research Award

Call for Nominations

As part of our commitment to encouraging and supporting coaching psychology research, the Special Group in Coaching Psychology offers an award for coaching psychologists who are actively involved in research as either an academic or practitioner. 

The winner of the SGCP Research Award is made in recognition of a distinguished, completed research project in coaching psychology.

The winner will receive:

  • A complimentary place at the SGCP Coaching Psychology Workshops & Conference 2017* where the award will be presented (attendance at the conference will be free of charge for the award winner. However, it will be responsibility of the award winner to cover their travel costs, accommodation and all other expenses) 
  • The opportunity to present their research at the conference
  • The opportunity to promote their research through the publications edited by the SGCP

The recipient of this award is likely to be a member of the SGCP (although this is not essential). 

Submissions for this award can be made by the person who has completed the research study or by a third party who wishes to recommend the individual for the Research Award. Nominations will only be accepted for named individuals.

The award will be made to the person whose research is deemed to make the most valuable contribution to the field of coaching psychology. Innovation will be considered alongside scientific rigour in the conception, design and analysis of the study. The award winner will be selected by an Awards Committee whose decision is final.

Nominations should consist of a succinct summary of the project (approximately 2,000 words) with a clear indication of the results obtained as well as a statement relating to impact. The judges reserve the right to request data to substantiate the findings reported. Nominations should also state why the project is worthy of consideration for the Research Award. If you are the proposer of your own research study, you will need to provide contact details of a third party who can verify the details of the project you are submitting. 

The project must represent the independent work of the researcher. 

The winner will be notified by in early November 2017. The award will be presented at the Conference on 7 & 8 December 2017 and the recipient should ensure that they are able to attend. 

Please note that individuals will not be considered for more than one SGCP award in any one year.

Nominations must be received by Monday 30 October 2017
