STP High School Teacher Travel Grant

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: STP High School Teacher Travel Grant (Deadline: February 28, 2019)


The Society for The Teaching of Psychology (STP; Division 2 of APA) is pleased to announce a new funding opportunity, the High School Teacher Travel Grant Program. Grant funds will be used to defray the costs of travel to psychology teaching conferences or to more general psychology conferences that have a significant teaching of psychology component.


Applicants must be members of STP, and priority will be given to applicants who have submitted, or will be submitting, a teaching-related proposal to the conference they are seeking to attend, or attending a conference hosted by Teachers of Psychology in Secondary Schools (TOPSS). STP encourages applications from colleagues at all career stages who have diverse backgrounds and experiences, or teach underserved populations. Conference travel must occur in the calendar year in which an award is granted.


The STP High School Teacher Travel Grant Program has a total of $10,000 USD to award. We anticipate granting 20 awards at a maximum of $500 USD each.

Policies regarding STP grant programs can be found here.  Applications will be evaluated on the degree to which the applicant demonstrates that the proposed conference attendance will improve the applicant’s teaching of psychology.

To apply, download the application (a fillable PDF; requires login), complete it, and email the PDF to:

Deadline for applications is February 28, 2019, 11:59 pm Eastern Standard Time. Applicants will be notified of award decisions by March 16, 2019.
