APA/USNC Apply for Travel Grant Funds for Montreal Congress


Interested Researchers Should Apply

APA and the U.S. National Committee (USNC) of the International Union of Psychological Science (IUPsyS) are applying for National Science Foundation (NSF) funding for a block travel grant program. This support from NSF would enable U.S. citizens to participate in the scientific program of the XXVI International Congress of Psychology, taking place August 16-21, 1996, in Montreal.

The meeting offers international exchange among psychological scientists and provides an opportunity for young scholars to interact with leading scientists across psychology's specialty areas. The Congress, which is the quadrennial meeting of the IUPsyS, is organized by the National Research Council of Canada and the Canadian Psychological Association.

If NSF provides the funding, the awards will be limited to individuals conducting research in areas dealing with the description, modeling, and development of human mental and perceptual processes, including learning, reasoning, problem solving, concept formation, memory attention, and perception.

A waiting list is available for interested individuals. If funding is approved, applications for awards will be judged according to criteria established by the APA Committee on International Relations in Psychology. Requests for application packets, which contain award criteria, should be directed to the APA International Affairs Office, 750 First Street, NE, Washington, DC; (202) 336-6025; FAX: 202/336-5919. The deadline for receipt of completed application forms is April 30, 1996.
