Your tax deductible contribution will give APS students the opportunity to travel to the upcoming 2016 APS Annual Convention in Chicago, May 26-29, and to the next International Convention of Psychological Science (ICPS), to be held in 2017. APS is committed to making psychological science as accessible as possible for the global scientific community.

W.K. & K.W. Estes Fund

William K. Estes (June 17, 1919 – August 17, 2011) had an enormous influence on psychological science, from his pioneering work in mathematical psychology to his collaborations with colleagues to his mentoring of students, many of whom are now leaders in the fields of learning and memory. He was recognized for his lifetime of donations with our Nation’s highest scientific honor, The National Medal of Science. The APS Observer featured remembrances written by leading researchers and close friends of Bill. This special collection is a celebration of his life and achievements.

Bill also had a special role in APS’s history and success as Founding Editor of our flagship journal Psychological Science. During those years, his wife, Katherine W. (Kay) Estes, served as Founding Managing Editor. In addition, Bill acted as the Founding Editor of Psych Sci and helped found the Psychonomic Society. The W.K. & K.W. Estes Fund is a joint project with APS and the Psychonomic Society to celebrate Bill and Kay’s tremendous contributions to psychological science.
