APA’s Minority Fellowship Program sponsors Psychology Summer Institute

Institute meets July 20-26, 2014 — apply by May 1.

The American Psychological Association’s Minority Fellowship Program sponsors an annual Psychology Summer Institute. The next institute will be held on July 20-26, 2014, in Washington, D.C.

The Psychology Summer Institute provides educational, professional development and mentoring experiences to advanced doctoral students of psychology and psychologists who are in the early stage of their careers. Participants are guided toward developing a grant proposal, postdoctoral fellowship, dissertation, treatment program, publication or program evaluation project. All projects must focus on issues affecting ethnic minority communities.

Participants will receive one-on-one mentoring on their projects by a consultant. Expert faculty will present seminars on selected topics such as grant writing, publishing and specific areas of research or service delivery. There will also be opportunities to network with representatives from federal agencies and foundations.

Additional information can be found on the Psychology Summer Institute website. Applications should be submitted online by May 1, 2014. 

Questions may be directed to the Minority Fellowship Program office by email or by phone at (202) 336-6127.
