Awards

Mogens Schou Awards

The tradition of the Mogens Schou Award began at the International Conference on Bipolar Disorder (ICBD) in recognition of Mogens Schou, MD for his establishment of the first efficacious treatment for bipolar disorder and for his contributions to the field of psychiatry and the treatment of bipolar disorder over his lifetime.  The Award, initiated by the course directors of the ICBD, has become an ongoing feature of the annual meetings of the ISBD. 


Selection of Candidates and Presentation of Award

The final decision regarding the Awards will be made by the ISBD Awards Committee after careful consideration of the candidates in each category.  

The Mogens Schou Awards recognize achievement in the following three categories:

  1. Research
  2. Education and Teaching
  3. Public Service and Advocacy

The name of the winners will be held in confidence until it is announced at the Awards Ceremony.  

 

How to Make a Nomination

Candidates must be nominated  by a current ISBD member. Past recipients (see list below) are not eligible to be nominated or win in any category of this award. The merits of the nominee are the primary factor considered in the review process; however, we encourage the inclusion of women, early career professionals, and participants from diverse geographic regions in the overall nominations. This reflects the continuing commitment of the ISBD to seek excellence through inclusion. 

To make an official nomination, send the following information to ISBD via email to Mary Miller (marym@isbd.org) no later than 4pm EST. Monday, March 1, 2021. 

  1. Name of nominee(s)
