Past Winners 








Central Connecticut
State University
2016–17 winner

The Psi Chi Chapter of Central Connecticut State University is honored to have earned the Eastern Regional Model Chapter award. These funds will subsidize many members' travel to the Eastern Psychological Association's annual convention in 2017.

Temple University
2015–16 winner

A distinguished part of our chapter’s work is our service to psychology students at Temple University. One such way we do so is by offering tutoring services to students. The tutors are unpaid Psi Chi members who work exceptionally hard in providing support to their peers. This award will be a wonderful way to provide compensation to our dedicated tutors for the time and effort they have spent tutoring. The award will also help the chapter continue executing events during the semester which help students explore career options in psychology, learn about educational tracks they may not have considered, and jump start their careers by helping them find labs to work in.
