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.
