The section on Federalism and Intergovernmental Relations of the American Political Science Association unanimously established a new annual award titled “The John Kincaid Award for the Best Article Published in Publius: The Journal of Federalism.” The section conferred the first John Kincaid award on a young woman scholar on September 3, 2016. The award is named in honor of Kincaid because of his scholarship and his 25-year stewardship of Publius. He stepped down as editor of the journal in 2006.
