American Psychological Association of Graduate Students (APAGS) Outstanding APA Division Award
This $1,000 cash award recognizes a division of APA for superior performance in promoting graduate student development, involvement and joint APAGS/APA division membership. This award is funded by APAGS and will be dispersed directly to the division to be used in accordance with the goals specified in the proposal.
A qualified division must demonstrate an exemplary level of commitment to providing opportunities for graduate student development. Applications will be evaluated based upon how well the division actively incorporates students and student issues into the governance and activities of the Division, develops and implements innovative programs that target the needs of students, promotes joint APAGS/APA division membership, encourages socialization of student into the profession, and helps students to shape their own professional identity.
In addition to being recognized as the “APAGS Outstanding Division of the Year” and receiving a monetary award of $1,000, the winning division will be presented with a plaque at the annual DSRN meeting, held during the APA Convention and acknowledged in APAGS publications.
