The Exemplar Award recognizes the work of an individual who has made major contributions to public policy by valuing the knowledge resident in academia and using research and analysis to craft innovative solutions to policy problems. This award serves to recognize extraordinary skills in policymaking and serve as a counterpart to those awards recognizing outstanding research. The award was created by APPAM's Policy Council in 2013 to draw attention to the important role individuals play in connecting research and policy in the policymaking process.
Deadline: August 31
The Rossi award honors the lifetime achievements of Peter Rossi (1921–2006) by recognizing important contributions to the theory or practice of program evaluation. The award may be for a recent paper, publication, or for an entire body of work.
