Established in 2013, the SAGE-CASBS Award recognizes outstanding achievement in the behavioral and social sciences that advances our understanding of pressing social issues. It underscores the role of the social and behavioral sciences in enriching and enhancing public discourse and good governance.

“Social and behavioral science research produces foundational and applied knowledge, expertise, and evidence that make profound societal impact” SAGE Publishing CEO Blaise Simqu and CASBS interim director Woody Powell said in a joint statement. “SAGE and CASBS are both deeply committed to the goals underlying this award – celebrating scholarship that crosses disciplinary borders, generating new ways of thinking, and advancing academically derived work that informs and improves society as a whole.” (SAGE is the parent of Social Science Space.)

Past winners of the award include:

  • Psychologist Daniel Kahneman, 2002 Nobel laureate in economic sciences and author of the acclaimed book Thinking, Fast and Slow (Watch SAGE’s founder interview Kahneman)
  • Pedro Noguera, the sociologist, education rights activist, as well as Distinguished Professor of Education and Emery Stoops and Joyce King Stoops Dean at the Rossier School of Education at the University of Southern California (Watch SAGE’s founder interview Noguera)
  • Kenneth Prewitt, former director of the U.S. Census Bureau and the Carnegie Professor of Public Affairs at Columbia University (Watch the lecture)
  • William Julius Wilson, the Lewis P. and Linda L. Geyser University Professor, Emeritus at Harvard University (Watch the lecture)
  • Carol Dweck, the Lewis and Virginia Eaton Professor of Psychology at Stanford University (Watch the lecture)
  • Jennifer Richeson, the Philip R. Allen Professor of Psychology at Yale University (Watch the lecture)

While having a connection to the CASBS or SAGE is not a requirement for the honor, Kahneman was a CASBS fellow in 1977-78; Prewitt in 1983-84; Wilson in 1981-82; and Richeson in 2021-22. Dweck was a consulting scholar in 2014-15.

In addition to a cash prize, the SAGE-CASBS Award winner will deliver a public lecture to be held at CASBS in spring 2023.
