The APA Science Directorate is pleased to sponsor its annual travel award competition for graduate students of psychology who will present research at the APA convention. This year’s convention will be held Aug. 3 – 6in Washington, DC.

Graduate students in psychology who are the first author of a poster or talk are eligible to apply for one of this year’s grants of $300 each. Applicants are required to submit an application form, cover letter, research summary, CV and paper/poster acceptance notice.

The deadline for applications to arrive is April 7, 2017.

Applications must be sent by email in a single PDF.  Up to three students from each department of psychology in the U.S. and Canada may submit applications. If more than three students from a department wish to apply for travel awards, the department must perform an initial screening and forward only three applications. Students enrolled at universities outside of the U.S. or Canada who will travel to the APA convention are eligible to apply for grants from the APA International Office but may not apply for this Student Travel Award.
