Association for Consumer Research

Early Career Award

About the Award

Established in 2010, this award recognized contributions to consumer research by someone who received his/her Ph.D. within the last eight years. Each year, a panel of three ACR members is appointed by the ACR President to serve as a selection committee. The panel solicits nominations from the ACR membership and selects one or more recipients of the award for their scholarly contributions to the field of consumer research. Criteria used to determine contribution include innovation, methodological rigor, and the potential to substantially advance our understanding of consumer behavior. The winner receives a plaque and a financial award.
