DISTINGUISHED SCHOLAR PRACTITIONER AWARD
Call for Distinguished Scholar Practitioner
Criteria for this all-Academy award include excellence in one or more of the following...
• (1) Successful application of theory or research in practice and/or contributed to knowledge through extraction of learning from practice; (2) authored scholarly works which have substantively affected the practice of management; (3) integration of research and practice. Their work will be respected by peers (both practitioner and academic). They may be or have been executives, authors, academics, or consultants, but the emphasis in this award is on the practitioner-scholar whose sense of inquiry and pursuit of knowledge have risen above just doing to use practice-based learning to influence theory and research-based theory to influence practice.

We encourage up to three [no more than three] letters of support for inclusion in the nomination package. The Committee may subsequently request additional information from the nominator and/or nominee.
• The recipient will be recognized at the Academy’s 2009 meeting, and is expected to accept the award in person.
