APA Convention Award Program for High School Psychology Teachers and Students
The APA Education Directorate, thanks to support from APA President Suzanne Bennett Johnson, PhD, is pleased to announce an award program for high school psychology teachers and their students who have shown a special interest in psychological science to attend the 2012 APA Annual Convention. The 2012 APA Convention will be held in Orlando, Florida, August 2-5, at the Orange County Convention Center. Given the location of the APA convention, preference will be given to applicants from Florida.
Applicants travelling from within Orange County, Florida, can apply for up to $300 in funding and those applicants travelling from outside Orange County can apply for up to $500 in funding. Funds must be used to cover one $95 teacher registration fee and up to four $10 student registration fees; teachers must plan on bringing at least two students to be considered for an award. Any funds within the requested amount that remain after registration fees have been covered can be used for food and travel expenses. Applicants are required to provide an approximate budget for these expenses along with their applications.
