A limited number of scholarships will be awarded by the American Academy of School Psychology to deserving doctoral students in school psychology in 2011. The scholarships are named in honor of two professionals who have contributed significantly to the AASP: Irwin Hyman and Nadine Lambert. The scholarships will be in the amount of $1,000 each, and may be used by students to help defray the costs of tuition, books, etc. or to subsidize attendance at the convention of the American Psychological Association or the National Association of School Psychologists.
Over the past four years, $1,000 scholarships have been awarded to sixteen outstanding doctoral students. This year, it is expected the AASP will award two to four scholarships, depending on available funds. Some of the scholarships will be given to honor the memory of Irwin Hyman and others to honor the memory of Nadine Lambert.
Each scholarship applicant should submit three copies of:
1) A letter of recommendation from his/her advisor,
2) A graduate school transcript,
3) A copy of his/her curriculum vitae,
4) A letter detailing present and future professional interests in school psychology and indicating how the scholarship will be used, and
5) Copies of convention papers or publications.
Applicants are required to submit all information by mail to the AASP President at the address below by June 21, 2011. A committee consisting of three Academy Fellows will select scholarship recipients. Awards will be announced at the annual meeting of the AASP at the convention of the American Psychological Association in Washington, DC.
