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.

For more information or to submit a question, please visit the Awards & Grants FAQ.

Two ways for faculty members to be involved.
  1. Become a reviewer. Psi Chi welcomes volunteers who have obtained PhDs in psychology or psychology related fields to review applications for awards and grants. Gain professional service hours. Help students and/or peers improve their work.
  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.

About our Programs

Psi Chi offers over $400,000 in awards, grants, stipends, and scholarships every year. And because our programs are open only to our members, there is a much smaller pool of competitors than other programs. Our deadlines are throughout the year, with some programs having two or three rounds during each year. All of Psi Chi’s awards, grants, and scholarships are peer reviewed by volunteer doctor faculty.
