Unrestricted Travel Reimbursement Grants
What is it?
  • Grants of up to $1,500 to help all Psi Chi members travel to psychology-related conventions in order to present their work.
  • These grants are entirely separate from Regional Travel Grants, and cannot be used to attend regional conventions.
  • A total of $34,500 is available annually through 23 or more grants.
  • There are two rounds of funding per year.

Deadlines are on May 5th and December 5th or the closest weekday.

How does it work?

  1. Complete a research project or proposal for research.
  2. Be invited or accepted to present at a psychology-related conference or convention other than one of the six regional conferences.
  3. Apply and receive an Unrestricted Travel Grant before OR after the conference.
  4. Mail a reimbursement form, original receipts, check out sheet from hotel, map showing mileage (if driving), and per diem estimate to the Psi Chi office following your travel.
  5. Upload a photo, and impact statement about your experience to Psi Chi.

Who should apply?

Psi Chi members who have been invited to present their research at a psychology related convention and can be reimbursed for travel expenditures.
Six of the twenty-three grants (at $1,500) are earmarked for faculty use.
One faculty grant will be earmarked for internationally based faculty.


Past Winners 

Keri Ka-Yee Wong
University of Cambridge
2013–14 winner

"Thanks to Psi Chi's travel support, my trip from Cambridge UK to San Francisco was made possible. I presented findings from my PhD, a new measure designed to assess childhood suspiciousness/paranoia (the social mistrust scale) and other work on the relationships between schizotypal personality and psychopathy. As a regional and campus representative for Europe and the University of Cambridge respectively, I also spoke on the panel ‘Surviving Graduate School.' As a second year APS attendee, I continued to be impressed by the range of wonderful events/talks by many distinguished guest speakers (Scott Lilienfeld, Adrian Raine, Paul Ekman, Mahzarin Banaji, and meet-and-greet with Philip Zimbardo to name a few). I have also received helpful feedback from other researchers and made some valuable contacts for my job search. If you missed APS this year, I would strongly encourage you to attend the next one in New York!
