The Gabriel A. Almond prize is awarded annually for the best dissertation in the field of comparative politics. It carries a prize of $750.
The award was created in recognition of Gabriel Almond's contributions to the discipline, profession, and Association. He was a long time faculty member at Stanford University and former APSA President (1966). Almond's scholarly work contributed directly to the development of theory in comparative politics and brought together work on the developing areas and Western Europe that prevented splintering into an array of disparate areas studies.
