Psi Chi has partnered with the APA’s Science Directorate to offer an internship during the summer that is exclusive to Psi Chi undergraduate members. Applications are due online by January 15, 2009.

SIX APS SUMMER RESEARCH GRANTS AVAILABLE FOR 2009
Psi Chi is pleased to be partnering with the Association for Psychological Science (APS) to offer six summer research grants again in 2009. Each grant provides the student with a $3,500 stipend to conduct research with an APS sponsor over the summer. The sponsor receives $1,500, making the total value of each grant $5,000. This spring, APS will provide Psi Chi a list of APS members who are willing to sponsor a student for the summer to conduct research. This list is posted on Psi Chi’s website. Interested members can refer to the list and contact sponsors to arrange summer projects. Ideally, applicants will apply to work with mentors in institutions outside of their own institution. Preference will be given to projects that are spearheaded by the grant applicant, encompass all aspects of the research process, and might result in a first-authored publication or presentation by the applicant. The deadline for submissions for this grant is March 1. Complete details can be obtained on Psi Chi’s website.
