Healthcare Scholarship: Psi Chi Awards and Grants

Overview of the Psi Chi International Honor Society in Psychology Award

The Psi Chi International Honor Society in Psychology awards multiple scholarships, grants, stipends and awards to Psi Chi members who are studying at the undergraduate or graduate levels. In total, Psi Chi awards over $350,000 in various awards, each year. The application deadlines for individual prizes vary, making it worth checking on the Psi Chi website for the particular application timeline for the scholarship programs of interest to you.

Among the Psi Chi programs for undergraduates, the society awards five cash awards, each worth between $300 and $600. The application deadlines vary. In addition to the five awards, the Psi Chi Society also awards several research grants to undergraduate students. These grants are typically worth anywhere from $1,500 to $7,000, with precise amounts depending on the proposed research projects. In addition, regional travel grants or travel reimbursement grants, designed to assist in research-related travel, may be worth up to $1,500. The deadlines for these grant applications vary, though many have fall due dates. The “Summer Research Grants”, on the other hand, all have March 4th deadlines.

Psi Chi also awards several awards and research grants to graduate-level students of psychology. The seven cash awards are worth between $300 and $1,200. Deadlines vary, though many fall in January and February. Besides the cash awards, Psi Chi gives out nine research grants and intern scholarships to worthy graduate students. These grants may cover up to $7,000, depending on the particular grant program and the scope of the project.

The application process varies, depending on which award you wish to apply for. However, regardless of the award, all applications should be submitted through the Psi Chi website. The application portal typically opens for applications around 30 days prior to the deadline. In general, all Psi Chi awards are only open to current Psi Chi members. Depending on the particular awards, candidacy may be limited to students who have written on specific topics, chapter presidents, students who can demonstrate leadership, or students who specifically wish to attend the APA Convention. To qualify for research grants, winning applicants can typically demonstrate the value of their proposed research toward the future of the field. In general, applicants for all scholarships must demonstrate academic excellence, and an interest in the field of psychology and the aims and activities of Psi Chi. Applicants for certain awards and research grants may need to travel to specific conventions, in order to present their findings.
