The Distinguished Scholar Award is a senior career award that recognizes the broad scope and potentially integrative nature of scholarship in personality and social psychology. It honors a scholar who has made distinctively valuable research contributions across his or her career that bridge personality and social psychology or bridge personality or social psychology to another field (ie. law, education, organizations, or medicine). It is intended for individuals whose career contributions are outstanding, but do not fit neatly within the prototypical social or personality research areas.

Recipients of this award receive a $1000 honorarium and accompanying plaque, which are presented at the annual Awards Ceremony held at the SPSP Annual Convention, as well as a complimentary one-year SPSP membership. In addition, travel and registration to the convention are provided, plus a three-night hotel stay, and the recipient will give an address in a special plenary session (along with the Block Award and Campbell Award recipients).
