Rocky Mountain Regional Letter

Happy New Year! A few friendly reminders as we begin the new semester. 

  • The 2019 Rocky Mountain Psychological Association (RMPA) convention will be April 4–6 in beautiful Denver, Colorado. 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. Her talk is titled “Back to the Future: Exploring Psychology’s Past, Reimagining Psychology’s Future” and will be followed by a conversation hour. 
  • We have a great slate of Psi Chi programming, OPEN TO ALL STUDENTS, including a grad school panel and sessions on convention etiquette, job skills, self-care, and a “how-to” about Psi Chi grants and awards. A big THANK YOU to our Rocky Mountain Steering committee, Dr. Xiaomeng “Mona” Xu (Idaho State University), Dr. Jennifer Grewe (Utah State University), and student member, James Owens (Adams State University). 
  • Both graduate and undergraduate Psi Chi members attending RMPA should plan to apply for the Regional Travel Grant (up to $400), due January 24. 
  • Looking for an opportunity to give back? Thanks to Dr. Elizabeth List (Northwest Nazarene University), we will continue our tradition of hosting a service activity at RMPA. If you’ll be arriving in time and would like to join us Thursday morning, April 4, please let us know when you register for RMPA. You can also help Psi Chi meet the goal of raising $89,000 to help fund scholarships, grants, and awards with our Give Back Campaign
  • Don’t forget that Psi Chi offers over $400,000 in awards and grants. Deadlines are coming up within the next few months including those for the Undergraduate Research Grants (up to $1,500, January 15), Unrestricted Travel Grants ($1,500, May 5), and Mamie Phipps Clark Research Grants, among others.
  • Check out Psi Chi’s three organizational publications: Psi Chi Journal of Psychological Research, Eye on Psi Chi magazine, and the Psi-Chi-ology Lab blog. There are many interesting articles available to you in each.
