APAGS Convention Travel Award

This award is for travel to APA's Annual Convention for first-time attendees.

Deadline: April 1, 2015

Sponsor: APAGS


Attending APA's Annual Convention is an important learning and networking experience for psychology graduate students. Due to the costs of attending convention, many students may not otherwise have the financial resources to attend. Thus, this award emphasizes granting funds to first-time convention attendees in need of travel support.

The American Psychological Association of Graduate Students (APAGS) is pleased to announce the APAGS Travel Award for the upcoming APA Annual Convention. APAGS will reimburse $500 to up to five psychology graduate students who have not previously attended convention. Preference will be given to those who:

  • Are first-time convention attendees.

  • Have some level of academic or leadership experience.

  • Agree to be an APAGS Ambassador.

The $500 award will reimburse convention registration costs and other travel/convention related expenses after convention occurs.
