The Malinowski Award was initiated by the Society in 1973. Since that time, it has been presented to distinguished social scientists including Jean J. Schensul, Thomas Weaver, Sir Raymond Firth, Margaret Clark, Conrad Arensberg, Paul Farmer, and Ward Goodenough.
The nominee should be of senior status, and widely recognized for efforts to understand and serve the needs of the world through the use of the social sciences.
