The Carus Lectures, funded by Open Court Publishing Company, are a series of three lectures presented over three consecutive days in prominent sessions at a divisional meeting of the APA. The Carus Lectures, which are named in honor of Paul Carus, began in 1925, when the first set of lectures was delivered by John Dewey. 

Award

$5,000 at the time of the delivery of the lectures. Upon delivery of the manuscript to Open Court for publication, the lecturer will receive a $1,000 advance against royalties. 

Frequency: Every other year in odd years.

Next Award: 2019

Process

The Carus Lecturer is selected by the APA committee on lectures, publications, and research (LPR). The LPR chair solicits five nominations from each member of the APA board of officers. Nominees must be members of the APA.
