Society for the Teaching of Psychology: Division 2 of the American Psychological Association


Call for Applications

The Society for The Teaching of Psychology (STP; Division 2 of APA) is pleased to announce its International 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.

Grants will be awarded for travel to psychology teaching conferences (e.g., STP’s Annual Conference on Teaching or the European Psychology Learning and Teaching Conference) or have a significant psychology teaching component (e.g., the American Psychological Association Convention with its teaching-oriented programming from Division 2 [STP] and other units in APA [e.g., TOPSS, CABE, BEA, other divisions] and associated groups [e.g., Psi Alpha, Psi Beta, Psi Chi], or the International Convention of Psychological Science with the pre-conference Teaching Institute).

Applicants must be members of STP, and priority will be given to applicants who have submitted, or will be submitting, a teaching-related proposal to the conference they are seeking to attend. STP encourages applications from colleagues at all career stages who are from underrepresented groups and have diverse backgrounds and experiences.

The STP International Travel Grant Program has a total of $10,000 USD to award. We anticipate funding approximately 6 to 8 awards at a maximum of $1,500 USD each. Funds will be divided among strong applications. Although the committee will strive to fund all strong applications in full, awardees may receive only a portion of the funds they request.

IMPORTANT: All reimbursable travel expenses must comply with STP's Travel Reimbursement Guidelines.

Deadline for applications is January 15 of the travel year, 11:59 pm Eastern Standard Time.

Policies regarding STP grant programs can be found here. Applications will be evaluated on the degree to which the applicant demonstrates that the proposed conference attendance will improve the applicant’s teaching of psychology.

Please complete the STP International Travel Grant Application (requires login) and email your CV (in PDF, named Lastname_cv.pdf) to Millie Cordaro, Chair of the STP International Travel Grant Committee, at before 11:59 pm Eastern Standard Time, January 15, 2024. January 15 of the travel year.

Applicants will be notified of award decisions by February 15 of the travel year.
