Early Career Awards

The European Health Psychology Society has two Early Career Awards: 

The Herman Schaalma PhD Award

The Herman Schaalma award is awarded annually to acknowledge a PhD dissertation in the field of health psychology of outstanding excellence in terms of originality, significance and rigour. The award aims to highlight examples of excellence in PhD level research and to reinforce early career researchers to address key challenges in health psychology and adopt novel and rigorous theory and methodology.

The EHPS Early Career Award

The EHPS Early Career Award aims to recognise outstanding research excellence, contributions made to the EHPS and/or contributions to professional practice made by EHPS members within 5 years of their PhD.

Any EHPS member wishing to apply or to nominate another member for EHPS Early Career Prizes should follow the Procedure for EHPS Early Career Award Application.
