2024 ACR Fellow - Call for Nominations

ACR members are invited to submit nominations for the 2024 Fellow in Consumer Behavior Award.

Nominees should have received their PhD at least 20 years ago. They should have been members of ACR for a substantial number of years, and they must still be living.  Nominees should have shaped the field of consumer behavior and furthered the interests of ACR in significant ways. These are likely to include, though not limited to, several of the following:


Developed a significant body of scholarly work and sustained influence on the field of consumer behavior.

Contributed theoretical or methodological innovations that have a continuing influence

Authored highly cited works that have a major and ongoing impact

Developed research-based programs that improve consumers’ quality of life in lasting and important ways through innovations in scholarship, policy, or practice.

Advanced excellent scholarship through service as a journal editor.

Advanced doctoral education through mentorship and service.


Nominations should be accompanied by a letter, up to a MAXIMUM of two pages in length, outlining the major reasons why you think your nominee meets the very high standard for the award. The letter should include a statement saying that the nominee is unaware of your actions in nominating them for the award to ensure confidentiality, as well as your relationship to the nominee (e.g., co-author, colleague).  Including a copy of the nominee’s vita is strongly recommended, as long as you can provide one without the candidate’s knowledge of what you plan to use it for. If a nominee was not selected in one year, they may be re-nominated in subsequent years. However, a new nomination is necessary each year. Current members of ACR’s Board of Directors and Fellows Nominating Committee are not eligible for the award.

Deadline: July 1, 2023

The nominating letter and nominee’s vita can be submitted at
this link, where you can also find a PDF of the full call for nominations.
