Psychology graduate students: Now is the time to start thinking about presenting your work at the prestigious 2015 APA Convention in Toronto, Ontario! The deadline to submit a proposal is December 1, 2014. APA Convention is August 6-9, 2015.
Why submit a proposal directly to APAGS?
- Gain valuable knowledge and experience for professional development.
- Have access to a national audience for sharing your ideas and insights, and gain professional contacts.
- Earn a gem for your CV!
- Chair a session in your own right, without needing sponsorship from a full APA member.
- As a first author on a posters or program, all APAGS members have their Convention registration fee waived.
Steps for submitting a proposal:
- Choose a topic that has broad appeal to many psychology graduate students. Focus on timely issues and present the most current information.
- Develop and refine your ideas by talking to your colleagues and advisors about topics and format. Ask reputable students and/or psychologists to present with you.
- Be sure to include contact information and affiliations for all presenters. Review your proposal for clarity and polish, and make sure that your proposal is complete.
- Submit your proposal electronically. The first question asks you to “Select the most applicable division for submission of this proposal” from a drop-down menu. Choose “GS- APAGS” to make sure your proposal gets to us.
- Submission deadline is December 1 but we recommend submitting early to avoid any last-minute complications.
Proposals will be reviewed and scored by the APAGS Convention Committee and selected presenters will be notified in early 2015. For more information, contact Heather Dade or visit the APA Convention website.
