Faculty Awards and Grants

Students are not the only ones benefiting from our funding. Psi Chi faculty members are eligible to apply for awards and grants with programs made specifically for them. Encouraging the advancement of psychology is part of the Psi Chi mission and in many ways, faculty members are uniquely positioned to do just that.

Application portals open approximately 30 days before the deadline.

    Apply to become a reviewer

  2. Serve as a sponsor. Many Psi Chi programs require students to have a faculty sponsor. As a sponsor, you will work side-by-side with a student, serving as a guide and mentor for a set amount of time as a project is completed.
