The Society for The Teaching of Psychology (Division Two of APA) is pleased to announce the Early Career Psychologist Travel Grant Program. Consistent with our Mission Statement and the Statement on Addressing Systemic Racism and Inequity in STP, we encourage applications from colleagues who are from underrepresented groups and have diverse backgrounds and experiences.
The grant program is open only to STP members who meet the ECP definition below. Grant funds can be used to defray the costs of attending psychology teaching conferences or conferences with a significant teaching of psychology component.
STP defines an Early Career Psychologist as a member who is within ten years of beginning teaching of psychology and who is not a student.
We will fund approximately 20 grants, with a maximum award of $500 per grant, for conference attendance between January 1 and December 31 of the upcoming year. Deadline for proposals is November 1 of the current year. Applicants will receive notification of award decisions no later than early December of the current year.
Policies regarding STP grant programs can be found here: http://teachpsych.org/members/policies.php. Applications will be evaluated on the degree to which the applicant demonstrates that the proposed conference attendance can improve the applicant’s teaching of psychology. Priority will be given to first-time recipients. Regional conference attendance is encouraged, but not required. The average funding rate of applicants since tracking began in 2012 is 72.5%. Many funded applicants have received full funding, but some proposals received were partially funded.
