Grants, Awards, and Symposia
**Note** Submissions for all 2016-17 Student Awards will open in late summer-early fall 2016.
In an effort to support student research in psychology, the APS Student Caucus provides a funding source
for APS student members to conduct research that currently is in its initial development.
The Student Research Award promotes and acknowledges outstanding research conducted by student members of APS.
The RISE Research Award seeks to cultivate scholarly research in psychological fields related to socially and economically under-represented populations.
The Psi Chi | APS Albert Bandura Graduate Research Award honors Albert Bandura with a competition for the best research by a graduate student in empirical psychology.
The Travel Assistance is intended to assist students attending the annual APS convention by defraying the cost of travel.
Current APS Student affiliates may only enter one APSSC competition each year (i.e., Student Grant Competition, Student Research Award, or RISE Research Award) and as such are only eligible for one of these three awards each academic year. Travel assistance is excluded from this rule.
