Submissions will be considered that:
❖Include a short essay on how the project supports sustainability through behavior analytic practices.
❖ Include objectives.
❖ Include methods/procedures.
❖ Specify how the award will be used.
Applicants planning to carry out research with human participants must follow the appropriately required steps to gain review and approval through the Institutional Review Board (IRB) process. Applicants planning to conduct human subjects research warranting an IRB application must provide letter(s) of support from relevant community partners with their award application. Studies limited to the inclusion of de-identified data that is publicly available (e.g., literature synthesis; reporting the number of restaurants that reuse utensils; types of waste found on a beach) does not require IRB review.
Congratulations to our 2016 winner
