Student Grant Competition

To encourage student research in psychological science, the APS Student Grant Competition provides small “seed grant” funding to support research in its initial development stages, e.g., the purchase of research materials or other expenses incurred prior to data collection. Up to eight awards ($500 each) will be given to APS student affiliates (graduates and undergraduates). Research proposals in all areas of psychological science are welcome.

Letter From Robert E. Gropp, Executive Director

Society Needs Science—and Science Needs Society

Additional research frequently improves our understanding of a phenomenon. Importantly, it is also frequently the case that many past research findings are unused by decision-makers who are working—often rapidly—to make decisions that will inform personal or community health, safety, and well-being.  To better ensure that accurate and modern insights into human behavior are used to inform these decisions, scientists must strengthen our connections with the public.
