APS Encourages Student Researchers for Sixth Year

More than 150 student and faculty researchers from more than 25 institutions converged on Fordham University on October 23 for the 28th Greater New York Conference on Behavioral Research. This year’s conference featured 44 presentations by 70 psychological scientists who were selected by a review committee of 10 faculty from local colleges. Approximately one-third of these presenters were student researchers delivering their first conference presentations.

APS actively supports student research and is one of eight professional organizations that endorse this annual conference. This is the sixth year that APS has offered a complimentary 1-year membership to all student and faculty participants as a welcome into the field of psychological science.
