To reimburse cost of travel and expenses for Psi Chi student members to present research at a psychology or psychology related convention.
The travel award should not be depended on to provide 100% of the funding required to attend an event. The applicant should understand that they may not receive all of the funding necessary to travel and should make financial plans accordingly. Travel grants are reimbursement only, meaning the student must turn in all receipts and necessary forms to be provided upon receipt of the grant before the funds will be provided.
Acceptable travel may occur before or after the grant period.
Winning applicants will receive funding up to $1,500 to attend a psychology or psychology related convention that is not funded by the Psi Chi Regional Travel Grants (EPA, MPA, RMPA, SEPA, SWPA, and WPA). Annually $22,500 is available for this program with at least $7,500 available per funding round. Any funds not distributed in previous funding rounds will be available for the next round.
At the time of submission, the applicant must be:
• a Psi Chi member, and
• either a graduate or undergraduate student.
The student applicant must be presenting at the convention, though the student need not be the first author of the presentation.
Students can only receive one unrestricted travel grant per fiscal year beginning July 1st 2013 through June 30th 2014. Applicants not funded in previous rounds may resubmit for later funding rounds.
