John C. Flanagan Award

John C. Flanagan developed the Aviation Psychology Program for the U.S. Army in 1941, leading to the creation of selection devices for pilots and air crews, and to the beginnings of the application of psychology to equipment design. Following WWII, he founded the American Institutes for Research (AIR), known for its wide-ranging research in all I-O specialties, educational research, and related areas, such as Project Talent. He is probably best known for the creation of the Critical Incident technique of job analysis. His substantial impact on the field is recognized through this award funded by AIR.

This award was created to recognize the best student poster at the SIOP conference.  To be considered for this award, the student must be the first author on the paper.  All student papers who fit this criteria are automatically considered for the award.
