SPP Diverse Scholar Award

Deadline: March 5,2018
Sponsor: Division 54

The Society of Pediatric Psychology is pleased to announce the “SPP Diverse Scholar Award” for underrepresented undergraduate and post baccalaureate students who have an interest in graduate training.  It was developed in order to support the goal of a more diverse pediatric psychology workforce. 

The award provides $1250 for travel to the 2018 SPP Annual Conference (April 5-7),  a year-long membership to SPP (including both journals), and connection with a mentor who can help the student plan to optimize their conference experience and who can discuss the student’s professional goals with them.

At its discretion, SPP may choose to acknowledge additional honorable mention recipients who receive a year-long membership to SPP (including both journals).
