SAGE Teaching Innovations & Professional Development Award

Please note that we are not accepting applications for APA 2021. Please check back for information about applications for future APA conventions. The information below describes last year’s application process.

SAGE Publishing, publisher of STP's journal, Teaching of Psychology, sponsors travel awards for two current STP members (early career and graduate student) who are planning on attending the annual APA convention. Consistent with our Mission Statement and the Statement on Addressing Systemic Racism and Inequity in STP, we encourage applications from colleagues who are from underrepresented groups and have diverse backgrounds and experiences.

This award has the purpose of helping defray the travel costs associated with attending the convention. Applications are due each year on April 1 for that year's APA Convention.

Awards Criteria:

  • Grant applicant must be an STP member who is early career or graduate student.
  • Priority will be given to first-time recipients.
  • Grant funds can be used to defray the costs of attending the American Psychological Association 2019 meeting.
  • The maximum award will be $1250.00.

Deadline for applications for the 2019 APA Convention was April 1, 2019.  No applications will be accepted for 2020.  Please check back for information about applications for future APA conventions.

Policies regarding STP grant programs can be found here.
