The biannual $5,000 award will be presented for the first time at the 75th conference of the National Council on Family Relations in November 2013 in San Antonio.

The new award has been established in the memory of Alexis Walker, an eminent scholar and pathfinder in Family Studies. Alexis was a visionary leader and mentor known for the scholarship and service, vitality, and interdisciplinarity she brought to the scholarship of gender, feminism, aging mother-adult daughter relationships, and families and health.

“Alexis had a rare combination of intellect, passion, vision, and wisdom which contributed to her undisputed reputation as one of the greatest family scholars,” said Margaret Zusky, Associate Publisher, Wiley.

“She was not only a premier scholar, but a wonderful human being. I had the honor of working with Alexis over many years, benefiting greatly from her guidance and wisdom. The voice of Alexis Walker will continue as a guiding force in the field and Wiley's Alexis Walker Award for emerging scholars will be a steady reminder of her major role in nurturing young scholars.”

A panel of judges representing Wiley’s society partnerships in this broad interdisciplinary field will review entries and determine the award winner. These include the Family Process Institute, the American Association for Marital and Family Therapy, the American Association of Family and Consumer Sciences, the Guttmacher Institute, the British Association for the Study and Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect, the British Association of Community Child Health, the Swiss Paediatric Society, the Michigan Association for Infant Mental Health, and the National Council on Family Relations. Entries are not limited to Wiley publications.

Katherine Allen will serve as Chair of the inaugural panel of judges. Dr. Allen is a Professor in the Department of Human Development at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia. Katherine and Alexis were collaborators for nearly three decades. Nominations and supporting details should be submitted to Margaret N. Zusky at Wiley, 350 Main Street, Malden, Massachusetts 02148 or at mzusky[.]wiley.com by July 1, 2013.
