Call for Presentations, Reviewers
The APSSC offers two opportunities for APS student affiliates who conduct research addressing concerns of socially and economically underrepresented populations (RiSE-UP), to contribute to their field. First, all student members who present their research at the 14th Annual APS Convention in New Orleans (June 6-9, 2002) are eligible to win one of three distinguished RiSE-UP awards of $250. All winners will be invited to present their work at the RiSE-UP Symposium being held during the convention. In order to be considered for this competition, students must complete the online Convention submission form by January 11, 2002. Second, student affiliates who are actively involved in this area of research are eligible to become reviewers for the aforementioned competition. Both of these great opportunities allow students to strengthen research competencies and to contribute knowledge to a valuable area of psychological research. For questions related to these opportunities, please contact the RiSE-UP Advocate, Charu Thakral, at firstname.lastname@example.org. For students interested in serving as reviewers for the RiSE-UP competition, please send a curriculum vita, a brief letter of interest, and contact information to the address below by December 30, 2001:

Grant Program, Research Competition
CALL FOR PROPOSALS APSSC Student Grant Program. In an effort to support student research in psychology, the APSSC provides a funding source for APS student affiliates to conduct research that currently is in its initial development. The APSSC Student Grant Program offers partial financial support for various research expenses (e.g., the purchase of research materials) prior to data collection. Up to three awards ($250 each) will be available to graduate student affiliates and up to two awards ($100 each) will be available to undergraduate student affiliates. Research proposals in all areas of psychological science are welcome. Each research proposal will be evaluated by peers on the clarity in the presentation of ideas, the ability of the project to explain some psychological phenomenon, and the ability of the project to advance research in a specified area.
