Description

The Div. 34 Graduate Student Research Award recognizes outstanding original research conducted by a graduate student on any topic in environmental, conservation or population psychology. The award consists of a certificate and a $150 prize. The award will be judged by a panel of division members and will be awarded on the basis of both the quality of the research and the writing.

Eligibility

The submission may be an original empirical investigation, a qualitative review paper, or a meta-analysis. There may be co-authors, but the student submitting the paper must be first author.

How to Apply

Students who would like their work considered for the award must make a submission, which should include the following. 

  1. A cover letter indicating that they would like to be considered for the award. 
  2. A letter from the student's supervisor confirming that the applicant is a graduate student in psychology (or affiliated field) and that the applicant's work on the project merits first authorship. 
  3. A full paper in APA (6th ed.) format reporting the project. This should be a complete report of the work, as would be written for a journal submission. 
  4. Two copies of the paper should be submitted: one with the authors' names included and one without, so blind reviews may be done. 

Send your submissions to the chair of the Awards Committee, Ezra Markowitz. The deadline for receipt is March 1. 

Note: Submissions do not have to be of published or accepted journal articles, although such submissions will be given full consideration.
