Student Affiliates

Welcome to the Div. 28 webpage for students. We hope that you will find the links listed below useful. If you have any suggestions on how to improve this site, please contact the student representative.

We invite you to become a student affiliate of APA and our division. APA is the largest association of psychologists worldwide, and Div. 28 (Psychopharmacology and Substance Abuse) is one of the first organizations to have the investigation of drugs and behavior as its mission. Our members include national and international experts in psychopharmacology and substance abuse.

Becoming a student affiliate of APA and of this division provides a forum for networking with other students as well as distinguished researchers and clinicians. You will also have access to Listservs and websites that provide useful information about funding, postdoctoral positions and other educational opportunities. Contact our membership chair to become a student affiliate of Div. 28.

The membership fee to gain student affiliate status in our division is only $9 per year. While APA affiliate status is not required, we recommend that our affiliates also become student affiliates of APA. You would then receive free subscriptions to APA magazines, discounts on APA journals and low APA convention registration fees. Check out the many other benefits of APA affiliation.

Div. 28 Undergraduate Scholarship

Each year we sponsor the Div. 28 APA Convention Undergraduate Scholarship. Awardees receive a one-year APA membership and convention registration and are invited to present their research and join our members at poster sessions and symposia. This award affords undergraduate students the opportunity to network with leaders in the field of psychopharmacology and substance abuse and to learn more about graduate school programs and training opportunities. Please consider nominating an undergraduate in your lab for next year's scholarship.
