Upfront

A psychology graduate student can have an inside look at how the association’s governance works thanks to a travel award from the Assembly of Scientist/Practitioner Psychologists (ASPP), a caucus of APA’s Council of Representatives. The students will receive $1,000 to travel to the council’s February 2014 meeting in Washington, D.C. At the meeting, the student who receives the award will be mentored by the ASPP chair.

Interested students may send their CVs, a 100-word statement explaining their reasons for applying for the award, and a letter of endorsement from their advisor addressing the student’s promise as a scientist-practitioner. Applications should be emailed to ASPP Chair Ellen W. Williams, PhD, at azshrink@aol.com. The deadline for submissions is July 12.

The ASPP Board will review all submissions, select a student and announce the recipient in August.
