APA Division 44 Announces LGBT Student Research Awards Program
Research Proposals for Two $1,000 Scholarships Due February 1!
The Society for the Psychological Study of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Issues (Division 44) is pleased to announce its student research awards program for 2013. The division awards two $1,000 scholarships for outstanding graduate student research proposals:
- The Malyon-Smith Scholarship Award is given for a proposal on psychological issues of importance to gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender individuals, groups, or communities. This scholarship is named for two founding past-presidents of the division, the late Alan Malyon and the late Adrienne Smith. It is a fund that annually awards up to $1,000 to selected graduate students in psychology to advance research in the psychology of sexual orientation and gender identity. The award represents one of the division's major efforts to mentor and support science in LGBT psychology by encouraging the work of young researchers. Applicants must be currently enrolled full-time in a department of psychology at the graduate level.
- The Bisexual Foundation Scholarship Award is given for a proposal on the psychology of bisexuality. This scholarship is an annual fund awarding up to $1,000 per award to selected graduate students to advance research on the psychology of bisexuality. This new award recognizes the growing importance of research on bisexuality to the field of LGBT issues in psychology and offers concrete support and encouragement to emerging scholars in this field. Applicants must be currently enrolled full-time in a department of psychology at the graduate level.
Applicants may submit proposals for unpublished studies at any phase of the research process. Students may use the same proposal to apply for both scholarship awards. Proposals must be submitted by February 1, 2013. Please note that the society has shifted to fully electronic submission process.
Complete submission instructions are provided on the Division 44 website. Questions can be directed to Dr. Alicia Lucksted at firstname.lastname@example.org or Dr. Stephanie Budge at email@example.com.
