Rosalee G. Weiss Award

The Rosalee G. Weiss Award is a joint award with the Division of Psychotherapy (Division 29). The award is made possible by an endowment given to the American Psychological Foundation by Raymond A. Weiss. It was established in 1994 by Raymond A. Weiss, PhD, in honor of his wife Rosalee. The lecturer receives an $800 honorarium. Representatives of Division 42 and Division 29 recommend the award candidates to the Board of Directors of the American Psychological Foundation, and the Foundation administers the lecture series.

The candidate is chosen on alternate years by Division 42 and Division 29. The Awards Committees of both divisions shall employ the following guidelines for the selection of the recipient.

  • Outstanding leader in arts or science whose contributions have significance for psychology, but whose careers are not directly in the spheres encompassed by psychology; or
  • Outstanding leaders in any of the special areas within the spheres of psychology.
