The winner receives $1,000 and a round-trip ticket to and three nights stay at APA's 2004 Annual Convention in Honolulu, July 28-Aug. 1. The prize is open to any student affiliate of APA currently enrolled in a graduate program. The prize-winning student will present his or her paper at convention.

Submissions must be of publishable quality and written in APA style. Submissions may not exceed 25 double-spaced pages and may not have been previously published or submitted for publication.

The submission deadline is March 5.
