Several annual awards are available for graduate students conducting basic psychological research in one of the following areas: cognitive, cognitive neuroscience, computational, developmental, experimental or comparative, industrial and organizational, neuropsychology, neuroscience, perception, psycholinguistics, personality and individual differences, physiological, quantitative, or social. Fields with a practice component (clinical, counseling, or school) are not eligible. Sponsor: the American Psychological Association.
These awards are to support the research costs of graduate students completing a masters or dissertation in the area of Clinical Neuropsychology.
