STP Early Career Travel Grant Program
STP is accepting applications for Early Career Travel Grants. Consistent with our Mission Statement and the Statement on Addressing Systemic Racism and Inequity in STP, STP encourages applications from colleagues who are from underrepresented groups and have diverse backgrounds and experiences.
This grant program provides funding to defray the costs of attending psychology teaching conferences or conferences with a significant teaching of psychology component. STP members who meet the criteria of Early Career Psychologists are encouraged to apply! Note: STP defines an Early Career Psychologist as a member who is within 10 years of beginning teaching of psychology and who is not a student.
We will fund approximately 20 grants, with a maximum award of $500 per grant, for conference attendance between January 1, 2023, and December 31, 2023. For travel during the 2023 year, there are two application deadlines. The first is November 1, 2022, and the second is May 1, 2023. Applicants will be notified of award decisions within one month of the deadline.
Policies regarding STP grant programs can be found here: http://teachpsych.org/members/policies.php.
Applications will be evaluated on the degree to which the applicant demonstrates that the proposed conference attendance can improve the applicant’s teaching of psychology. Priority will be given to first-time recipients. Regional conference attendance is encouraged, but not required. The average funding rate of applicants since tracking began in 2012 is 80%. Many funded applicants have received full funding, but some proposals received were partially funded.
