The Society for Psychoanalysis and Psychoanalytic Psychology (SPPP; Division 39 of APA) is pleased to announce the Division’s Scholars Program. We are calling for applications for this program from students or early career professionals who have an interest in psychoanalytic psychology/psychoanalysis. The program will run from the SPPP Spring Meeting in Chicago, March 30-April 2, 2022 until the following year’s Spring Meeting, March/April 2023.
The Scholars Program is sponsored by several sections and committees within the Division, including:
Scholars will receive the following benefits:
Applicants must meet the following criteria:
Be currently enrolled as a student as of September 2021 OR be an early career professional (up to 10 years post-terminal graduate degree) in clinical psychology or related disciplines, including humanities. Priority will be given to first-time attendees and those with demonstrated financial need.
Please note: Applicants may apply only once per year and must specify on the application the committee or section to which they are applying. While we recognize that many prospective Scholars may be eligible to apply under multiple committees/sections, given their intersecting identities and roles, we encourage applicants to apply under the section/committee that matches their highest priority for mentorship and engagement with the Division. The Scholars Program is committed to helping Scholars connect with multiple areas of interest within SPPP and providing opportunities for cross-committee engagement. Additionally, the number of Scholar slots sponsored by each section and committee is proportional to the number of applications they receive; that is, no section or committee is more or less competitive than any other. Finally, the travel award of $900 is strictly for those Scholars who will be attending the Chicago conference in person. Scholars who attend virtually will still receive free registration.
The Scholars Program application is now closed.
