Fund your conference

These grants support precollege and undergraduate teaching conferences to enhance the quality of teaching and learning outcomes

The Board of Educational Affairs (BEA) is awarding $10,000 in grants in 2012 to support conferences on enhancing the quality of undergraduate education in psychology and advancing the teaching of psychology at the secondary, two-year, or four-year level. To be considered for funding, the conference must be directed by an APA member, associate or affiliate, and meet the stated criteria. The grant may be used to offset travel expenses of selected conference participants, registration fees of conference participants, and speaker fees.  Applicants may qualify for up to $1,000 during a given year and applications for new as well as annual meetings are encouraged.  More information is available on the APA website.

Funding requests for teaching conferences in 2012 must be postmarked by Jan. 30. Send requests to Martha Boenau of the Education Directorate, at the APA address or via email.
