STP High School Teacher Travel Grant

Call for Applications (Deadline: October 1, 2019)


The Society for The Teaching of Psychology (STP; Division 2 of APA) is pleased to announce a new funding opportunity, the High School Teacher Travel Grant Program. Grant funds will be used to defray the costs of travel to psychology teaching conferences or to more general psychology conferences that have a significant teaching of psychology component.


Applicants must be members of STP, and priority will be given to applicants who have submitted, or will be submitting, a teaching-related proposal to the conference they are seeking to attend, or attending a conference hosted by Teachers of Psychology in Secondary Schools (TOPSS). STP encourages applications from colleagues at all career stages who have diverse backgrounds and experiences, or teach underserved populations. Conference travel must occur in the calendar year in which an award is granted.


We will fund approximately 20 grants, with a maximum award of $500 per grant, for conference attendance between January 1, 2020, and December 31, 2020.  Deadline for proposals is October 1, 2019.  Applicants will receive notification of award decisions no later than early December 2019.

Policies regarding STP grant programs can be found here.  Applications will be evaluated on the degree to which the applicant demonstrates that the proposed conference attendance will improve the applicant’s teaching of psychology.
