This listing has expired. View current opportunities here.


The Early Graduate Student Research Award (EGSRA) program recognizes students for conducting outstanding research early in their graduate training. It focuses on both the student’s general research experience and specific completed research projects. Research may be in any area, including basic, applied, translational and interdisciplinary science. Early graduate student researchers will be evaluated primarily on the scientific and practical significance of their research, as well as their other research-oriented activities.

The EGSRA funds may be used for direct research expenses, software and/or conference travel. It may not be used for tuition, fees or personal expenses. Each recipient receives an award of $1,000. Up to three awards are given each year.

At the time of the application deadline, the student must meet each of the following requirements:

  • Be currently enrolled in a doctoral program in psychology (or related discipline) at a regionally accredited university located in the United States or Canada.
  • Have no surpassed the first quarter of the third year of graduate training at the time of the application deadline.
  • Be an American Psychological Association (APA) graduate student affiliate or associate member, or apply for APA affiliation before the award application deadline.
