Paula Miller, Psi Chi Executive Officer/Chief Operations Officer
Editor of Eye on Psi Chi

As this issue of Eye on Psi Chi reaches your doorstep, spring will be in full blossom. Spring means many different things for Psi Chi:

  • For Psi Chi members, it means applying for Psi Chi's awards and grants, spring inductions, attending regional conventions, finals, and making summer plans.
  • For Psi Chi chapter officers, it means transitioning new chapter officers and filling out Annual and Financial Reports.
  • For seniors, it means graduation and ordering your Psi Chi honor cords, stoles, and medallions.
  • For Psi Chi faculty advisors, it means overseeing the final aspects of research, attending the spring induction ceremony, grading finals, and posting grades.
  • For the Psi Chi National Council, it means attending regional conventions, hosting hospitality suites, and meeting Psi Chi members.
  • For the Psi Chi National Office, it means mailing 10,000 graduation stoles, honor cords and medallions to members; inducting 14,000 new members at Psi Chi Chapters; attending regional conventions; and receiving all the spring Awards and Grants submissions.

Psi Chi's Awards and Grants Program has several spring deadlines that are highlighted below. Psi Chi encourages you to take advantage of all the opportunities that are offered to its members through this program. Additional information about all of Psi Chi's awards and grants is available at our website HERE.

NSF/REU Grants
Deadline: Spring 2005
All undergraduate Psi Chi members are eligible to apply for these summer research grants, which are offered by Psi Chi in conjunction with the Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF).

This research must be conducted while still an undergraduate, not after graduation. Psi Chi will award a total of six grants to fund Psi Chi members who qualify for an NSF/REU grant during the 2004-05 year. A total of $30,000 has been allotted for this grant program.
