Nominations for the 2018 Freeman Award are now being accepted.

The Freeman Award is given to a distinguished scholar in the field of social networks for significant contributions to the scientific study of social structure.  The award is designed to be given to a young scholar, someone in the earlier stages of their research career -- someone under 40 years old or someone who has received their PhD within the past 10 years. Consideration is also given to persons who have come to education later in life or who have interrupted their career for any reason (family, health, etc.). A complete description of the award and list of past recipients can be found at

Nominations (including self-nominations) are now being accepted. A nominating letter should briefly summarize the nominee's contributions to the field of social networks. Nominees will be contacted and asked to provide a brief summary of their work and a copy of their CV. The recipient will be announced in June at Sunbelt XXXVIII in Utrecht, and will deliver the Freeman Lecture at Sunbelt XXXIV in Montreal (June 18-23).

The 2018 Freeman Award Committee is Zachary Neal (chair), David Schaefer, and Laura Koehly. Nominations and supporting materials should be sent to the chair at [log in to unmask]. All materials must be received by 30 April 2018.
