The Stanford Prize celebrates outstanding research in psychology at the undergraduate level. Up to five students from around the world are selected each year. Undergraduate students who provide evidence of exceptional scientific achievement in any area of psychology are eligible.
Eligible projects are blindly evaluated by a panel of Stanford professors. Projects are judged with respect to their originality, independence, methodological quality, potential scientific impact, and societal relevance. Students must present their project at the Stanford Undergraduate Psychology Conference and they must be an undergraduate at the time the award is made. Winners of the Stanford Prize are presented with a certificate and with a generous cash award.
Students indicate their intent to apply for the award while submitting their abstract for the Stanford Undergraduate Psychology Conference. Additional information is subsequently requested from top candidates in mid April, if necessary. Recipients are announced during the conference in May.
