APA Student Travel Award
The Science Directorate of the American Psychological Association sponsors an annual competition for graduate student travel awards. The purpose of the Travel Award program is to help psychology graduate students travel to the annual APA convention to present their research.
In 2012, approximately 100 students received $300 to support their travel to the APA convention in Orlando, Fla. In addition, seven students who applied for a Travel Award received an Ungerleider/Zimbardo Travel Scholarship of $300 from the American Psychological Foundation, bringing to 107 the total number of students who received a grant of $300 to help support their attendance at convention.
In addition to being eligible to apply for a Travel Award, students who are both members of the American Psychological Association of Graduate Students (APAGS) and first authors are also eligible to have their convention registration fees waived. Further information about this potential fee waiver will be mailed to eligible students by early June.
