APA/APAGS Award for Distinguished Graduate Student In Professional Psychology

The Award for Distinguished Graduate Student in Professional Psychology is awarded on an annual basis by the Board of Professional Affairs (BPA) and the American Psychological Association of Graduate Students (APAGS) to a graduate student who has demonstrated outstanding practice and application of psychology.

Winners receive an honorarium of $1,000; the opportunity to present an invited address at APA’s convention; a waiver of convention registration fees; and reimbursement of up to $1,500 in expenses related to attendance at the convention.


Early Graduate Student Researcher Award

The Early Graduate Student Researcher Awards program recognizes students for conducting outstanding research early in their graduate training (i.e., research conducted within the first two years of doctoral study). It focuses on both the student’s general research experience and specific completed research projects. The research independence of the applicant as well as the novelty and implications of research performed as a graduate student will be used for evaluation purposes. Therefore preference may be given to students who have completed their second year of doctoral studies.

The funds may be used for direct research expenses (e.g., computer time, animal care, equipment, participant fees and incentives), software and/or conference travel; it may not be used for tuition, fees or personal expenses.

Each recipient receives an award of $1,000.
