The American Psychological Association (APA) is offering up to 25 fellowships to college students from underrepresented groups to conduct Summer research in a psychological science laboratory.
Projects must be student-driven and supervised by a faculty member. Participating faculty are expected to meet regularly with students to discuss research progress and goals. Students are expected to spend at least nine weeks in the laboratory at a minimum of 20 hours per week.
The APA will pay a stipend of $4,000 directly to the student and $1,000 directly to the student’s faculty mentor. Additionally, the APA will reimburse up to $1,500 of travel expenses for the student to present their research at the APA Convention.
To apply for this program, students must:
- Be enrolled full-time at the time of application
- Have at least one semester remaining in their degree program at the time of application
- Spend the entire nine weeks working on-site at the faculty mentor’s laboratory
A psychology major is not required, but the student’s field of study must include psychological science as a major focus. Students do not need to be enrolled at the same institution as their faculty mentor.
How to Apply
To apply for this program, each student must submit:
- Online application
- Undergraduate transcript(s)
