APA Dissertation Research Awards and Early Graduate Student Researcher Awards: Call for applications

The Science Directorate of the American Psychological Association (APA) is administering two award programs for graduate student research in 2011: the Dissertation Research Awards and the Early Graduate Student Researcher Awards.  Graduate students in all areas of scientific psychology are eligible.  

APA Dissertation Research Awards

The Dissertation Research Award assists science-oriented doctoral students of psychology with research costs. In 2011, the Science Directorate will make up to 30 awards of $1,000 each, as well as several awards of up to $5,000 each, to students whose dissertation research reflects excellence in scientific psychology.  The application deadline is September 15, 2011.

For more details about this award, including eligibility requirements and application materials, visit the APA Dissertation Research Awards webpage.

Early Graduate Student Researcher Awards

The Early Graduate Student Research Awards, sponsored by the APA Science Student Council and Science Directorate, recognize students who demonstrate outstanding research abilities early in their graduate training (i.e., within the first three years of doctoral study). Both overall research experience and specific completed research projects are considered in selecting awardees.
 
Up to three awards are given each year, drawn from basic science, applied science, and interdisciplinary science areas. Each Early Graduate Student Research Award is in the amount of $1,000.
 
The application deadline is September 15, 2011.  For more details about the awards, including eligibility requirements and application materials, visit the Early Graduate Student Researcher Awards webpage.

Questions about either award program can be directed to the Science Directorate via email or telephone (202) 336-6000.
