     APA Dissertation Research Awards

    The Dissertation Research Award assists science-oriented doctoral students of psychology with research costs. In 2017, the Science Directorate will grant up to 30 awards of $1,000 each, as well as several awards of up to $5,000 each to students whose dissertation research reflects excellence in scientific psychology.

    For more details about this award, including eligibility requirements and application materials, visit the APA Dissertation Research Awards webpage.

    Early Graduate Student Researcher Awards

    The Early Graduate Student Research Award, sponsored by the APA Science Student Council, recognizes students who demonstrate outstanding research abilities early in their graduate training (i.e., research conducted within the first two years of doctoral study). Both overall research experience and specific completed research projects are considered in selecting awardees. 

    Up to three awards are given each year, drawn from basic science, applied science and interdisciplinary science areas. Each Early Graduate Student Research Award is in the amount of $1,000.

    For more details about the awards, including eligibility requirements and application materials, visit the Early Graduate Student Researcher Awards webpage.
