She believed that by encouraging research and researchers, the result would have a greater impact. This award is presented to an individual in recognition of distinguished scholarly contributions to the clinical practice of ophthalmology. The recipient presents the Weisenfeld Award Lecture at the ARVO Annual Meeting and receives a plaque, complimentary registration, hotel and travel, and per diem.

Division 38 of the American Psychological Association Graduate Student Research Awards Program
Division 38 of the American Psychological Association is sponsoring five graduate student awards to support new research. Each award is for $1500. The awards are distributed in the following three categories.
STUDIES IN GENERAL HEALTH PSYCHOLOGY - 2 AWARDS
1. Understanding the etiology, promotion and maintenance of health;
2. Prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of physical illness;
3. Psychological, social, emotional and behavioral factors in physical illness; and
4. Health care systems and health policy.
RESEARCH IN CHILD HEALTH PSYCHOLOGY - 1 AWARD
Studies addressing one of the topics outlined in the items above under General Psychology directed at a sample comprised primarily or exclusively of children or adolescents. This award is conferred in memory of Lizette Peterson, a former Health Psychology editor and Division 38 member.
RESEARCH ADDRESSING HEALTH DISPARITIES - 2 AWARDS
Defined as "differences in the incidence, prevalence, mortality, and burden of diseases and other adverse health conditions that exist among specific population group" (National Institutes of Health). In particular, these awards are intended to support research focusing on various health conditions that are more prevalent, serious, or specific to disadvantaged and medically underserved groups, or on healthcare inequities relevant to these groups, specifically, ethnic minorities and socio-economically disadvantaged individuals in rural and urban areas.
In the event that fewer than 5 proposals are received in the area of child health psychology, relevant applications will be included in the pool for general health psychology research, and an additional award will be conferred in this area. Likewise, if fewer than 10 proposals (but more than 5) are received in the area of health disparities, only one award will be selected from this area, and an additional award will be conferred in general health psychology; if fewer than 5 proposals are received in health disparities, proposals submitted for this award will be included in the general health psychology pool, and two additional awards will be conferred in this area
Proposals will be reviewed on an annual basis and must be received by January 15 in each year, with notification of award made in March.
The award competition is open to full-time students enrolled in any degree conferring-graduate program in psychology. To be eligible to receive the award, students must be current members of Division 38. Research awards are typically used to fund students’ thesis or dissertation research, but this is not a requirement of the support mechanism. Students may submit only one award per content area and may not receive more than one award in a given year. Preference will be given to submissions from students who have not previously received this award.
For the purposes of this award, the term "research" is broadly defined as any scholarly endeavor, including but not limited to experiments, correlational studies, qualitative investigations and evaluation research.
