members, and counting.
Division 15 is pleased to announce the results of our most recent election:
- President-Elect: E. Michael Nussbaum, PhD
- Treasurer-Elect: Beverly S. Faircloth, PhD
- Representative to APA Council: Avi Kaplan, PhD
We look forward to the leadership and vision of these scholars as they begin three-year terms immediately following the 2016 APA Convention.
Members of APA’s Division 15 Memorial Awards Committee are proud to honor the legacies of three exceptional scholars/luminaries in our field: Dr. Jerome Bruner, Dr. Gavriel Salomon and Dr. Claire Ellen Weinstein, who passed away this year. As such, we will offer our organization’s 2016 dissertation grants in honor of these luminaries and their contributions to our field. Also, we will pay them tribute at our Business Meeting at the APA Convention.
Please assist us with this tribute by submitting a personal comment (thoughts, memories, or even the impact of their work on your own) by no later than July 31st via the links below. Please note that the essay section will expand to accommodate several lines of text:
- For Dr. Gavriel Salomon, please share a tribute here: http://edpsych.us/GavrielSalomon
- For Dr. Jerome Bruner, please share a tribute here: http://edpsych.us/JeromeBruner
- For Dr. Claire Ellen, please share a tribute here: http://edpsych.us/ClaireEllen
We will compile these thoughts into a statement that will be read during the Division 15 Business Meeting at the 2016 APA Convention, along with an announcement about the dissertation grant recipients. If you have questions, please email Terri Thorkildsen, Memorial Awards Committee Chair, at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
This post is to notify Division 15 members of a final call for the Division’s 2016 Early Career Research Grants. Completed applications should be submitted by the extended deadline of July 1st.
The purpose of this award is to provide financial support (up to $6,000 each per two awards) for educational psychologists who are in the early phase of their careers, and to support research activities that might not be readily sponsored by their institutions or organizations.
