Harry and Pola Triandis Doctoral Thesis Award

The purpose of the International Association for Cross-Cultural Psychology is to promote and facilitate research in the areas of culture and psychology. The IACCP believes that it is important to encourage high quality intercultural research at the predoctoral level. The Harry and Pola Triandis Doctoral Thesis Award is intended to honor and reward good research and to advance the early careers of dedicated researchers. Support for the award is provided by the Harry and Pola Triandis Fund that was established in 1997 (see Bulletin, June, 1997).

Kwok Leung Research Award

Kwok Leung (1958-2015) died unexpectedly at age 57. He received his PhD from the University of Illinois as one of Harry Triandis' many successful students. He served most recently as Chair Professor, Department of Management City University of Hong Kong.

During his short life he made a highly significant contribution to cross-cultural research and to the International Association of Cross-Cultural Psychology. He served as symposium organizer at numerous IACCP conferences, he was Regional Representative for East Asia on the Executive Commitee of IACCP, he served as Associate Editor of the Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology and he was President of IACCP from 2010-2012. He also helped found the Asian Association for Social Psychology. He was not only a gifted social scientist but, according to those colleagues who knew him personally, he had a "beautiful mind and a deeply caring heart.”

After he passed away, the Executive Council of IACCP initiated a research award in memory of Kwok Leung's service to the field and to cross-cultural science. This award will be given to support research by doctoral students and young scholars entering the field.

Early Career Award

Early career researchers’ contributions are critical for the health and growth of cross-cultural psychology. Their research inspires not only more established researchers, but also sets a standard of excellence and provides examples for aspiring researchers.  An Award for Early Career Contributions to Cross-Cultural Psychology has been established to honor researchers at an early stage of their careers for their outstanding contributions to knowledge generation, dissemination and application for cross-cultural psychology primarily through research, but also through teaching of cross-cultural psychology and service to the field given the available opportunities.
