APA Dissertation Research and Early Graduate Student Researcher Award Deadlines Set for September

The American Psychological Association supports psychology graduate student researchers each year through its Student Awards Program.  Currently, the Directorate is advertising for two awards – the APA Science Student Council Early Graduate Student Researcher Award, and the APA Dissertation Research Awards.  Deadlines for both awards are in September – September 1, 2017 for the Dissertation Awards, and September 15, 2017 for the Early Graduate Student Researcher Awards.  Applications are welcome from graduate students in any research specialty area.

Through mailings and publicity we strive to reach students with information about our awards program each year.  Your help in distributing this information to your students is invaluable, and makes it possible to reach truly deserving students. If you have any questions about the awards program, please contact me directly at vholt@apa.org.

 

APA Dissertation Research Awards

Sponsored by the APA Science Directorate, the Dissertation Research Award assists science-oriented doctoral students of psychology with research costs. In 2017, the Science Directorate will grant up to 50 awards, ranging from awards of $1,000 to awards of up to $5,000 to students whose dissertation research reflects excellence in psychological science.

The application deadline is September 1, 2017. For more details about this award, including eligibility requirements and application materials, visit:

Early Graduate Student Researcher Awards

The Early Graduate Student Researcher Awards, sponsored by the APA Science Student Council, recognize students who demonstrate outstanding research abilities early in their graduate training (i.e., within the first three years of doctoral study). Both overall research experience and specific completed research projects are considered in selecting awardees.  Up to three awards are given each year, drawn from basic science, applied science, and interdisciplinary science areas. Each Early Graduate Student Researcher Award is in the amount of $1,000.

The application deadline is September 15, 2017.  For more details about the awards, including eligibility requirements and application materials, visit:

Complimentary APS Membership

The Association for Psychological Science (APS) would like your help in extending complimentary APS Membership to your department’s newly-minted PhDs (graduates in winter 2016 or spring 2017).

APS Membership includes a number of valuable benefits, among them:

  • Instant online access to all five field-leading APS journals, (and, submissions are now open for our brand new journal, Advances in Methods and Practices in Psychological Science);
  •  “This Week in Psychological Science (TWiPS),” a time-saving weekly email featuring summaries of the latest research published in APS Journals;
  • Member-only registration discount for the APS Annual Convention, to be held in San Francisco in May 2018;
  • Affiliation with the leading organization dedicated to advancing all areas of psychological science;
  • Free subscription to the monthly Observer magazine;
  • And much more.

We will contact each person individually to offer complimentary membership. There is no obligation implied on the part of your institution, or any of your graduates by filling out the contact form or providing information. I assure you this really is a “no-strings” offer. We’ll even extend a current membership for one year if the new PhD is already an APS Member.

Rorschach Performance Assessment System Training

The University of Hartford will be hosting training on the Rorschach Performance Assessment System.  We believe this will be of great interest to both students and practicing psychologists who wish to learn the most recent approach to the Rorschach. Below is a brief description of the training, and I’m attaching a flyer for your information.   Please share with your collogues and students.
 
The University of Hartford is pleased to announce that we will be offering a workshop on the R-PAS (Rorschach Performance Assessment System) from Aug 7-10, 2017. The workshop will be led by Phil Erdberg and Don Viglione, and it is designed to provide in-depth training for psychologists with no previous Rorschach training or experience, as well as for those with previous experience who want a thorough understanding of the R-PAS. Registration fees are $600 before June 30, and $700 after that date; CEUs will also be offered at an additional charge. Please see the attached flyer for more information, or visit commerce.cashnet.com/rpas to register.
