For individuals planning to be clinicians, credentialing scholarships are available to cover application fees.  Estimates suggest these fees can be $400 or more, with additional fees to them cover maintenance of the credentials.  The National Register of Health Service Providers in Psychology, in conjunction with American Psychological Association of Graduate Students (APAGS), is pleased to announce an award for doctoral students in psychology interested in becoming credentialed by the National Register through its student program, the National Psychologist Trainee Register (NPTR).  For more information, please visit
