Fund your conference

The Board of Educational Affairs is awarding grants to support conferences on enhancing the quality of undergraduate education in psychology and advancing the teaching of psychology at the secondary, 2-year or 4-year level

The Board of Educational Affairs (BEA) is awarding $5,000 in grants in 2010 to support conferences on enhancing the quality of undergraduate education in psychology and advancing the teaching of psychology at the secondary, 2-year or 4-year level. 

  • To be considered for funding, the conference must be directed by an APA member, associate or affiliate. 

  • The grant may be used to offset travel expenses of selected conference participants, registration fees of conference participants and speaker fees.

  • Applicants may receive up to $1,000 during a given year. However, if fewer than five acceptable applications are received in a given year, the BEA may award more than one block grant to the same conference in that year.

Funding requests for teaching conferences in 2010 should be postmarked by February 15, 2010. Send written requests to Martha Boenau, Education Directorate, at the APA address or via email.
