Psi Chi, the International Honor Society in Psychology, was founded in 1929 with a mission to encourage excellence in scholarship and advance the science of psychology. More than three-quarters of a million lifetime members have joined including Distinguished Members such as Drs. Albert Bandura, B. F. Skinner, and Phillip Zimbardo. A few popular Membership Benefits include international recognition for academic excellence, as well as access to psychology-related publications and more than $400,000 in annual awards and grants (this amount is reduced for 2020-2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic).

Regional Research Awards
If you are an undergraduate student and have done empirical research, consider presenting a poster or paper to share your work with the professional community. By presenting at MPA as a Psi Chi member, you will be eligible for a Regional Research Award available to members of the Midwestern region. More importantly, you will gain experience and confidence. If you are not yet a Psi Chi member, check out our website and talk to your local chapter to see if you are eligible to join. And even if you are not a Psi Chi member, you can still present your work at MPA through the Psi Chi program!
