Professor Ann Bowman received the Daniel Elazar Distinguished Scholar Award from the Federalism and Intergovernmental Relations section of the American Political Science Association (APSA) on September 2, 2016. The award, which recognizes distinguished scholarly contributions to the study of federalism and intergovernmental relations, was presented during the APSA annual meeting in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Elazar was a leading political scientist and specialist in the study of federalism. He founded and directed the Temple University Center for the Study of Federalism, a prominent federalism research institute.

Bowman holds the Hazel Davis and Robert Kennedy Endowed Chair in Government and Public Service at the Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University.

“I’m honored to receive this award recognizing my contributions to research on intergovernmental relations especially since it comes from my colleagues in the APSA,” said Bowman.

Dr. Bowman came to the Bush School in 2008 from the University of South Carolina, where she was the James F. and Maude B. Byrnes Professor of Government. She specializes in state and local politics and management; public policy, especially the substantive areas of environment, economic development, and land use; and intergovernmental relations. She is a fellow of the National Academy of Public Administration and is immediate past-president of the Southern Political Science Association.
