The Society for The Teaching of Psychology (Division Two of APA) is pleased to announce the Early Career Psychologist Travel Grant Program (formerly the Faculty Development Small Grants Program). The grant program is open only to STP members who are enrolled in a psychology Ph.D. program or otherwise 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 an individual who is within ten (10) years post-doctorate or within ten (10) years of beginning full-time college teaching, whichever comes first.
We will fund approximately 20 grants, with a maximum award of $500 per grant, for conference attendance between January 1, 2015, and December 31, 2015. Deadline for proposals is October 19, 2015. Policies regarding STP grant programs can be found on the STP website (http://teachpsych.org/members/policies.php). Applications will be evaluated on the degree to which 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. The average funding rate of applicants since tracking began in 2012 is 72.5%. Most funded applicants have received full funding.
Please submit your completed STP ECP Travel Grant Application and CV electronically to Amy Hackney at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applicants will receive notification of award decisions by early December, 2015.
