  1. APA Science Advanced Training Institutes (ATIs) expose psychological scientists to emerging technologies and the most current research methodologies. ATIs are hosted each summer at prominent research institutions across the country. Eligibility - new and established faculty, researchers, post-docs, and advanced graduate students - are invited to apply.
  2. APA Summer Science Institute (SSI) is a 10-day intensive program designed to immerse undergraduate students in the science of psychology. The Institute gives students an opportunity to explore the intellectual, personal, and social processes of scientific inquiry and to experience cutting-edge psychological research through seminars and hands-on laboratory activities. Award - scholarship support is available for qualified students. Eligibility - must be a freshman or sophomore.
  3. SPSP-EAESP Summer School provides funding for up to 5 students to attend summer school to learn the latest theoretical, methodological, and empirical developments in specific subfields of social psychology. The location of the summer school switches every year between North America (SPSP Summer School) and Europe (EAESP Summer school). Award - $400 per participant to cover travel costs, and also partial contributions to board, lodging, and registration. Eligibility - doctoral students currently enrolled in a Ph.D. program who have not participated in a prior SPSP-EAESP Summer School.
  4. RAND Graduate Student Summer Associate Program allows graduate students to conduct short-term independent research within the framework of an ongoing RAND project and are mentored by RAND staff. Summer associates typically work at RAND for a 12-week period, and are given the opportunity to conduct independent research that can be completed during the three months they are at RAND. Eligibility - fulltime students who have completed at least two years of graduate work leading to a doctorate or professional degree. Approximately 25 students in a wide range of academic disciplines participate in the program each year. U.S. citizenship is not necessary except for positions that require security clearances.
  5. Solomon Asch Center Summer Institutes are interdisciplinary programs designed to bridge the gap between research and practice by bringing together social scientists and practitioners to study the origins and consequences of ethnopolitical conflict. SAC is an independent center in the University of Pennsylvania's School of Arts and Sciences. Award - stipends, travel, and housing.
  6. AAAS Mass Media Science & Engineering Fellows program is a 10-week summer program places graduate and post-graduate level science students at media organizations nationwide. Fellows collaborate with media professionals at radio and television stations, newspapers, and magazines. The AAAS Fellows use their academic training in the sciences as they research, write and report today's headlines, sharpening their abilities to communicate complex scientific issues to non-specialists. Fellows have worked as reporters, editors, researchers and production assistants at such media outlets as the Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times, National Public Radio, Sacramento Bee, and Scientific American. Award – AAAS typically selects from 20-25 Mass Media Fellows each summer. Fellows are provided a weekly stipend of $450 as well as travel expenses to and from AAAS and their sites. Eligibility - Post doctoral applicants must apply for the summer fellowship within one year of defending their thesis.
  7. Summer Research Opportunity Program (SROP-Psychology) started in 1992 at the University of Utah aimed at enhancing the research careers of underrepresented students in psychology. The SROP-Psychology program is supported by a training grant from the National Institute of Mental Health. Every summer, SROP-Psychology accepts both undergraduate and pre-masters level graduate students into an 8 to 10-week internship that provides valuable research and professional development experience under the guidance of faculty in the Department of Psychology. Award - Travel, stipend (approximately $2,750 for undergraduates & $4,000 for graduate students), room & board, and tuition are paid for all students selected into the program. Eligibility - SROP Psychology accepts current graduate students (for the pre-masters graduate research training program), current undergraduate students (sophomores and above), and recent graduates from four-year undergraduate institutions who are USC citizens and are African American, American Indian, Asian American, Hispanic, or Pacific Islander/Alaskan Native and/or low income/first generation college students.
