Rocky Mountain Regional Letter

Dear Rocky Mountain Psi Chi members,

Welcome back after what I hope was a very enjoyable summer. I am excited to begin my second year of service as your Rocky Mountain Region Vice-President. Listed below are several important updates, announcements, and deadlines to keep in mind for this year.

  • The 2019 Rocky Mountain Psychological Association (RMPA) convention will be April 4–6 in lovely Denver, Colorado. Please note that our proposal deadline is earlier than in recent memory. Proposals to present at RMPA are due on Monday, December 17, 2018. Additional details are available on the RMPA webpage. Students holding membership in Psi Chi may elect to submit proposals for oral papers that will be specifically considered for Psi Chi awards. The Psi Chi Distinguished Lecturer at RMPA will be Dr. Cathy Faye (University of Akron), the assistant director of the Drs. Nicholas and Dorothy Cummings Center for the History of Psychology.
  • Looking for an opportunity to Give Back? Stay tuned for more information about a service opportunity for your chapter at RMPA in April. Also, help Psi Chi meet the goal of raising $89,000 to help fund scholarships, grants, and awards at
  • Is there something you want to see at RMPA? I invite you to send me your suggestions at The Psi Chi Rocky Mountain Steering Committee will soon begin to discuss the program. Your Steering Committee members are Dr. Xiaomeng “Mona” Xu (Idaho State University), Dr. Jennifer Grewe (Utah State University), and student member, Kèren Bakke (Adams State University). Their service is much appreciated!
  • Psi Chi offers over $400,000 in awards and grants! Make sure to take a look at the broad range of awards and grants available to Psi Chi members. Deadlines for many awards and grants are coming up within the next few months including those for the Undergraduate Research Grants (up to $3,500, November 1), SuperLab Research Grants (October 1), Unrestricted Travel Grants ($3,000, November 1), and Mamie Phipps Clark Research Grants (up to $1,500, November 1), among others.
  • Check out Psi Chi's two organizational publications, Psi Chi Journal of Psychological Research and Eye on Psi Chi. There are many interesting articles available to you in both.
