In 2021, the STR Division will be awarding the STR Emerging Scholar Award and the STR William D. Guth Distinguished Service Award.
To nominate someone for either award, please send an email to Heather Berry, STR Division Chair Elect (email@example.com) with either heading "Emerging Scholar Award nomination" or "Guth Distinguished Service Award nomination". Please include a brief explanation as to why you are nominating the individual (please address how your nominee meets the award criteria) and either attach the nominee's CV or include a URL link. Self-nominations are accepted. Nominations for both will be accepted up until January 15, 2021. The winners of both awards are selected by an STR committee.
2021 STR EMERGING SCHOLAR AWARD
The STR Emerging Scholar Award is given every other year, in odd-numbered years. The recipient will be a promising scholar who has established a research record of exceptional quality. The recipient will have a solid publication record and his/her scholarly contributions will already demonstrate an impact on the field of strategic management. The recipient of the 2017 Emerging Scholar Award was Zeke Hernandez (U. of Pennsylvania) and the recipient of the 2019 Emerging Scholar Award was Seth Carnahan (Wash U.).
Candidates will be judged by the relevance, academic contribution, theoretical and methodological rigor, and practical implications of their work.
Who is eligible: Scholars who received their PhD or doctorate degree within 6 years prior to the award year (so for eligibility in 2021, the candidate's final dissertation defense date must have occurred after January 2015) and who is an STR member.
2021 STR WILLIAM D. GUTH DISTINGUISHED SERVICE AWARD
The STR William D. Guth Distinguished Service Award (created in 2017) is given every other year, in odd-numbered years. The recipient will be an STR member with at least 15 years of service to the field, who has made significant contributions to activities within the STR Division, the Academy of Management, and/or to the broader field of strategic management. The recipient of the inaugural award in 2017 was Duane Ireland (Texas A&M U.) and the recipient of the 2019 Guth Distinguished Service Award was Ed Zajac (Northwestern U.).
Award criteria may include editorial contributions at journals or of edited volumes of strategy research, significant contributions to the Academy of Management, conference organizing, administrative roles, or textbook authorship. Those who have served as STR officers are ineligible until at least five years after their term ends.
