Welcome Div. 1 students.

Fill out the student survey and join the student Listserv.

By Emily Dow

A new academic year is on its way, and as your student representative I would like to personally welcome you to Div. 1! Congratulations to all of the student winners of our Div. 1 poster session and research award at Convention this past August.

This is the 70th year of Div. 1 and I would like to take this opportunity to find out the needs of Div. 1 student members. Below you will find a link to a quick survey (three minutes, at most!) with questions to help us better develop programs for students. Please take time to complete the survey at your earliest convenience.

There are many benefits to being a student member of Div. 1, including free membership the first year! You also have a subscription to the Div. 1 journal, Review of General Psychology, as well as a subscription to the Div. 1 newsletter, The General Psychologist. Additionally, Div. 1 is great place to network and meet senior faculty from all disciplines – an opportunity to collaborate on any project. Please encourage your colleagues and peers to join Div. 1 as you move through your academic training.

As a student member, be sure that you are signed up for the Div. 1 student Listserv [DIV1STUDENT]. Subscribe to the Listserv. This is a great place for you to ask questions, share information, seek others to co-author a convention proposal, etc.

Additionally, there are two student awards supported by division:

  • The Anne Anastasi General Psychology Graduate Student Research Award
  • The Raymond Corsini Award (Poster Award)

Any student who submits a poster to Div. 1 is automatically considered for the Raymond Corsini Award. The deadline for the Anne Anastasi Research Award is usually in the spring. Both awards are given at the APA convention. Stay tuned (or subscribe to the student Listserv) for future announcements about these awards.

We hope that many of you will join us at APA in Toronto next year. There are several opportunities to present your research, including:

  • Collaborative Programs (deadline: Friday, Oct. 15, 2014)
  • CE Workshops (deadline: Monday, Nov. 10, 2014)
  • Division Submissions (deadline: Monday, Dec. 1, 2014)
  • Film Festival (deadline: Friday, Dec. 26, 2014)

View the call for proposals.

Many of you joined us at APA this past August in Washington, D.C., and we hope many more of you will join us in Toronto next August (don't forget to bring your passport, non-Canadian students). Keep a look out for student announcements about submission deadlines for presentations and awards. Have a great year!
