Dissertation Research Grants

Division 15 invites graduate students who are members or affiliates of the division to apply for a Dissertation Research Grant. The purpose of the grant is to provide financial support for educational psychology doctoral students preparing to collect their dissertation data. Two grants will be awarded, each including a $1,000 stipend to be applied toward the student’s dissertation research. Announcement of the grant award winners will be made during the APA convention.

To be eligible, applicants must be current graduate students who are members or student affiliates of Division 15. Applicants must have submitted or defended a dissertation proposal to their committee but must have not yet collected dissertation data.

Submissions will be evaluated based on the importance of the research question, match with Division 15 goals, and quality of the proposed methodology.
