Each year AGESW recognizes outstanding contributions to the field of social work and aging and celebrates the achievements of its members. Nominations are now open for the following award categories:
AGESW Doctoral Student Leadership Award
The Doctoral Student Leadership Award is given to a doctoral student who has demonstrated strong leadership in social work education and aging. This person will be an emerging scholar and have demonstrated outstanding service, teaching, and research in social work and aging through activities on campus, in social work agencies and communities, in published literature, and/or at the state or national levels.
Faculty Achievement Award
The Faculty Achievement Award is awarded to a faculty member who is in the early stages of career development (a tenure-track assistant professor, clinical assistant professor, assistant professor of practice, or similar) and will be based on the individual’s contributions and potential in social work and aging. Indicators will include development of a line of scholarship in aging, a growing presence (presentations, committee participation) in local, state, or national organizations focused on aging issues, and demonstrated leadership in teaching or promoting age-related content in their department, school, or broader university.
While self-nominations are welcomed, nominations from mentors or colleagues are encouraged. Membership in AGESW is not required but highly encouraged. Award winners will receive a one-year complimentary membership to AGESW.
