Experimental Psychology Graduate Research & Travel Support
Students are reimbursed for up to $250 when they are the presenting author on a paper, symposium, or poster at a professional conference, or up to $150 if they are attending a conference as a non-presenting author on a paper, symposium, or poster.
Within a fiscal year, a student may be reimbursed for one trip. The trip must be approved by the department chair prior to the travel. After the trip, receipts must be presented for travel expenses in accordance with university policies and procedures. Forms to request travel funds and to request reimbursement are available in the department office.
Students who are conducting a thesis or dissertation can receive up to $300 in equipment, materials, and supplies for that research project. Other research is supported as department funds are available. These amounts are subject to change depending upon departmental resources.
Funds also are available from outside the department. The Graduate Student Senate makes various research awards each semester. The proposals are relatively simple, and students in the department have been fairly successful in winning these awards. Still other funds are available from the APA and outside granting agencies. See the Director of Experimental Training or the Assistant Chair for Graduate Studies for more information.
