Deadline: April 15, 2014

Sponsor Education Directorate

Description

The APA Education Directorate, thanks to support from the APA Board of Directors, is pleased to announce an award program for high school psychology teachers to attend the 2014 APA Annual Convention. The 2014 APA convention will be held in Washington, D.C., Aug. 7-10, 2014, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. Given the location of the APA convention, preference will be given to applicants from the D.C. metro area.

There are two levels of available funding:

  1. Individual teachers can apply for $200, to cover one $95 teacher registration fee and $105 to cover food and travel expenses*. 
  2. Individual teachers who want to bring between two to four students with them 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 this level of 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.
