The Best Family Financial Well-Being Paper of the Year Award is a way to recognize outstanding scholarship in family economics and to increase awareness of and participation in NCFR’s Family Financial Well-Being Focus Group.
The authors of the winning paper each receive a certificate. The award is presented at the Family Financial Well-Being Focus Group meeting at the NCFR Annual Conference.
- Papers must be fully published (i.e. not merely online advance articles) in one of the peer-reviewed journals included on a list maintained by the Family Financial Well-Being Focus Group and in the calendar year prior to the conference.
- Acceptable formats include empirical papers, reviews, and theory papers.
- At least one author of the research article must be a member of NCFR.
Family Financial Well-Being Focus Group members make nominations for best papers in each journal that represent high-quality scholarship and which substantively address both family and economic/financial content. NCFR verifies current membership of all authors on nominated papers. Nominated papers that qualify are ranked by a smaller panel of judges affiliated with the focus group and the highest-ranked paper wins the award. Committee chairs notify the first author and coordinate receipt of the award.
June 1: Nomination deadline. Submit all materials to the Family Financial Well-Being Focus Group co-chairs Clinton G. Gudmunson and Xiaohui "Sophie" Li.
July 31: The recipient is notified by this date
The co-chairs of the Family Financial Well-Being Focus Group serve as committee chairs. Other committee members will be members of the Family Financial Well-Being Focus Group who volunteer, or when needed, by special invitation from a co-chair.
