O'Leary to receive 2017 H. George Frederickson Award for Career Contributions to Public Management Research

Wednesday, May 10, 2017

Dr. Rosemary O'Leary has been selected to receive the 2017 H. George Frederickson Award for Career Contributions to Public Management Research from the Public Management Research Association (PMRA). This award is the highest honor that PMRA can bestow.

A total of 20 scholars representing 14 institutions nominated Dr. O'Leary for embodying the award criteria of "exemplary contributions to the intellectual development of the field and building professional capital related to public management research." The nomination letter detailed the many, important ways that Professor O'Leary's work has impacted scholarship and practice.

This year's award selection committee was chaired by Professor Oliver James of the University of Exeter. Based on communication that we received from PMRA President, Don Moynihan, the committee selected Dr. O'Leary from an "exceptionally competitive pool of nominees." She will be the eighth recipient of this high honor.

The award will be presented at the June PMRA conference, which will be hosted by American University in Washington, DC.
