Each year since 2004 (and once before that) the International Security Studies Section of the International Studies Association has recognized a Distinguished Scholar in International Security Studies with an award. I write now as co-chair, along with Martha Crenshaw, of this year's committee to solicit nominations for two awards – the Distinguished Scholar Award and our newer Emerging Scholar Award.  

The Distinguished Scholar Award is given for life achievement in International Security Studies. Typically, nominees will have made major contributions to scholarship in the field both via their own research and writing and their mentorship of others. The nomination may come from any member of the International Security Studies Section.  Nominations should be accompanied by a short letter of justification (not more than 1 page) and the nominee’s CV.  

The Emerging Scholar Award is meant to recognize scholars under the age of 45, or within fifteen years of receiving their PhD who are judged to have made (through their body of publications) the most significant contribution to the field of security studies. The nomination may come from any member of the International Security Studies Section. Nominations should be accompanied by a short letter of justification (not more than 1 page) and the nominee’s CV.  

The 2017 Distinguished Scholar Award recipient will be honored at a special panel at the ISA conference in Baltimore in February 2017. Both the Distinguished Scholar Award and Emerging Scholar Award include a plaque and a $500 award, distributed at a reception following the panel.

If you wish to nominate someone for either award, please send a nomination to me by May 7, 2016. Candidates nominated for the Distinguished Scholar Award in previous years are still considered to be in contention, and do not need to be re-nominated.
