Society for the Teaching of Psychology: Division 2 of the American Psychological Association

Conference Presenter Grant Program


The Society for The Teaching of Psychology (STP; Division 2 of APA) is pleased to announce a program to provide support to teaching conferences or preconferences to fund presenters related to the teaching of psychology. 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.

The grant program is open to any gathering of psychology teachers from 4-year colleges and universities, 2-year colleges, or high schools. (Please note that the program does not fund presenters for regional research conferences through this program; long-standing regional research conferences are supported by STP through another program.)

Amount of Funding Available

Each year, STP provides $9000 total in funding spread among six grant recipients in the amount of $1500 per presenter/conference. This money will provide travel reimbursement for the presenter, and the conference will be expected to fund (or waive) the presenter’s registration. Please note that STP may fund a presenter for more than $1500 travel reimbursement when special circumstances exist (e.g., international presenter, necessary accommodations).

Applicants for this grant program must be members of STP.  A total of 6 grants are funded each year, with two deadlines for submission as described here (requires login).

Submission Due Date

Funding will be awarded twice a year, with application due dates of April 1 and October 1 each year. Three grants will be awarded for each due date, with the October deadline funding grants for conferences taking place the following calendar year and the April deadline funding grants for conferences taking place after April of the same calendar year. Applicants may submit for either or both deadlines; if an applicant submits for the October deadline and is unsuccessful in securing funding, they may resubmit for the April deadline, provided their conference is scheduled for some date after that April deadline.
