The purpose of the Conferences Grant Program is to promote the exchange of important new contributions and approaches in scientific psychology. The tightening of institutional funding has made this program even more important to psychological scientists as they seek outside sources to support scientific conferences.
A review committee of APA members makes conference grant award decisions. Members of this committee are: Oscar Barbarin; Anita Davis; Michael Domjan; Kathleen McDermott; Kevin Murphy; James W. Pennebaker.
