The Dunnette Prize is given to honor living individuals whose work has significantly expanded knowledge of the causal significance of individual differences through advanced research, development, and/or application.

Professor Dunnette devoted virtually his entire academic and professional life to the assessment, prediction, and explanation of individual differences in human behavior and performance.  There are certainly many important interventions that influence behavior and performance, but their interactions with individual differences are equally important.  The Dunnette Prize was established to recognize individuals who have made significant and lasting contributions to understanding (assessing, predicting, and explaining) human behavior and performance by explicating the role played by individual differences.  Such contributions can be in the form of basic research, applied research, or applications in practice.  Professor Dunnette did not see them as distinct entities – each informs the others.

The Dunnette Prize carries a cash award of $50,000, to be presented at the SIOP Annual Conference.  In addition, recipient(s) are expected to give an invited address about the Prize winning contributions at the SIOP conference at which the award is received.
