2002 David Travel Award
The David International Travel Award is made possible through a donation made by Henry P. David, PhD, to the American Psychological Foundation (APF). The award supports a young psychologist–someone with a PhD, PsyD, or EdD in psychology, with not more than 5 years postgraduate experience–with a demonstrated interest in human reproductive behavior or an area related to population concerns. Funds are used to subsidize travel (up to $1,000) to an international or regional congress of the award recipient's choice. The submission deadline is February 15, 2002. Psychologists from anywhere in the world are invited to apply. For more information, and to obtain a complete list of application criteria and an application form, contact the International Affairs at the APA address; (202) 336-6025 (telephone); (202) 218-3599 (fax).
