Early Career Research Grants
Division 15’s largest award, designed to support budding scholarship of great importance.
The Early Career Research Grants program is intended for early career professionals or researchers who are working in educational psychology and who are members of Division 15. The purpose of the grant is to provide financial support for an educational psychologist in the early phase of his/her career to support valuable research activities. The grant provides a monetary award of $6,000 each for up to two selected applicants each year.
Applicants can be up to five years beyond the conferral of the doctoral degree at the time of application, and may be working in academic institutions, research and development organizations, or other research venues. Applications will be evaluated by the committee based on the scientific merits of the proposal – theoretical grounding, importance of the research questions, soundness of methodology, and implications for practice in the area of educational psychology. The Research Grant recipient(s) will be announced by the President at the Business Meeting during the annual APA Convention.
