Division 3 Graduate Student Representative Message
First, I would like to take a sentence or two to introduce myself. My name is Angela AuBuchon. I am beginning my fourth year at the University of Missouri, and in addition to serving as your new Division 3 Student Representative, I spend my time studying individual differences in working memory capacity.
The Division 3 Student Representative is charged with helping students get the most out of their APA membership. Interestingly, this seemed to be the unofficial theme of the 2009 APA Convention in Toronto as the following three questions came up time and time again. I have tried to compile for you the many responses I heard throughout the convention.
What can APA do for you?
APA is the largest political voice for psychologists at the federal level. To get a sense of the advocacy work that APA does, visit their Government Relations Office website at http://www.apa.org/ppo/. Being a member of Division 3 (and maintaining that membership once you graduate), is an effective way to make sure your concerns as an Experimental Psychologist are represented by APA.
But that is a bit abstract, right? Can APA do anything for you directly? Absolutely! APA and the APA Graduate Student Association (APAGS), have a number of awards and fellowship opportunities:
1. To be an advocate mentioned above, check out graduate student internships http://www.apa.org/ppo/fellows/ offered by the Government Relations Office.
2. The APA Science Directorate offers a number of scholarships and research awards http://www.apa.org/science/funding.html. Check them out soon because the Dissertation Research Award deadline is September 15.
3. Scholarships and awards given by APAGS can be found at http://www.apa.org/apags/members/schawrdsintro.html
What can Division 3 do for you?
Being a part of Division 3 allows you to network with faculty members and fellow graduate students from across the country, all of whom share an interest in experimental psychology. Additionally, Division 3 has five APA journals dedicated to experimental psychology, providing you with multiple outlets to publish your research.
What can you do for APA and Division 3?
SHARE YOUR RESEARCH! Whether you publish in an APA journal or present at the APA convention, disseminating your research to the other members of APA will help those members maintain a high quality of psychological research and practice themselves. You might also consider holding a student leader position. If you are interested in learning more about the Division 3 Student Representative position, or any of the positions available through APAGS, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
