The Center for POS launched this biannual award in 2008 to recognize outstanding scholarship in
positive organizational scholarship and to encourage research.
The award carries a $5,000 (USD) prize plus paid expenses to the bi-annual Conference on Positive Organizational Scholarship hosted by the Center for POS in Ann Arbor, MI, where the recipient gives an invited talk at the conference, based on the article that wins the award.
Information about applying for the 2012 Award will be available by early 2012
