Healthcare Scholarship: Association of Black Psychologists

Overview of the Sage Student Research Award

The Association of Black Psychologists (ABPsi) confers the annual Sage Student Research Award to encourage outstanding scholarship in psychology related to persons of African descent. The honor includes a cash award of $750 and also includes all travel expenses for the award recipient to attend the association’s Annual International Convention in Indianapolis, IN. Award winners have the opportunity to attend the convention and, possibly, to present their work to peers.

In order to qualify for the award, applicants must demonstrate the relevance of their research to the psychological experience of African-descent populations. Each applicant must submit a prepared research paper of no more than 35 double-spaced pages. Both published and unpublished manuscripts are welcome, provided any published works are from the past 12 months. Published works must also conform to the guidelines of the Journal of Black Psychology.

All applications must be submitted electronically by May 25th. The due date may vary somewhat from year to year; therefore, it’s well worth confirming the current deadline information before submitting. Typically, all submissions must be received by the end of May, as the convention takes place in mid-July.

A winning paper will clearly demonstrate a sound theoretical/conceptual framework and methodology. In addition, the paper should show its potential to inform and improve policy-making. Winning papers will also demonstrate innovation in perspective and a high likelihood of eventual publication.

Finally, the winning applicant will demonstrate the core values of the Association of Black Psychologists through their research and paper. Specifically, the aims of the ABPsi are to increase the participation of Black students in research and scholarship; to enhance Black students’ professional development; and to expand the number of Black clinicians and professionals in the field of psychology. The award is intended to assist in these aims by targeting African American psychology students with a particular interest in developing and enriching the field along these lines.

In order to qualify for the award, applicants must be full-time psychology students in either an accredited graduate or undergraduate program. They must also be current members of the National ABPsi Student Circle, with up-to-date dues paid. Finally, they must demonstrate an interest and dedication to improving the psychological health of African/African-American communities.

In addition to the individual award, the ABPsi also offers a Chapter of the Year Award, to recognize outstanding ABPsi Student Circle chapters.
