Student Poster Award

The Society for a Science of Clinical Psychology (SSCP) hosts an annual student poster session at the APS Annual Convention.  Those receiving the top award receive $200.  Winners of the "Distinguished Contributions" Award receive $100.  A year complimentary membership in APS is also awarded to winners in the two categories.  The number of awardees is at the discretion of the reviewers.  The total amount of cash awarded in 2014 was ~$1,500.


To be eligible to submit an SSCP poster, the first author of the poster must be a student and must be a member of SSCP at the time of submission. Submissions to the SSCP student poster session must be completed by January 31, 2018.  You will also be contacted by email in April to submit a copy of the final version of your poster in May, 2018.


The SSCP poster submission can be in any area within scientific clinical psychology (e.g., the etiology or correlates of psychopathology, assessment/diagnosis, clinical judgment, psychiatric classification, psychotherapy process or outcome, prevention, psychopharmacology). The research and analyses presented in the poster submission must describe results (i.e., submissions containing such language as "Data will bec ollected...." will not be considered). Please be sure to provide enough relevant detail in the summary so that reviewers can adequately judge the originality of the study, the soundness of the theoretical rationale and design, the quality of the analyses, the appropriateness of the conclusions, and so on. Members of all underrepresented and minority groups are encouraged to apply.
