Sponsored by the APA Science Directorate, the Dissertation Research Award assists science-oriented doctoral students of psychology with research costs. In 2012, 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.

The application deadline is Sept. 17, 2012. More details and application.

Early Graduate Student Researcher Awards

The Early Graduate Student Research Awards, sponsored by the APA Science Student Council, recognize students who demonstrate outstanding research abilities early in their graduate training (i.e., within the first three 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.

The application deadline is Sept. 17, 2012. More details and application.
