Meeting professionals, enjoying the programming, and perhaps seeing a bit of the city, are all interesting aspects of attendance. Psi Chi encourages members to attend conventions by offering Regional Travel Grants. If you attend a WPA convention, consider applying for a Psi Chi Travel Grant—you may find yourself eligible and have your travel expenses reimbursed!
