Graduate Travel Award


The Psychonomic Society will annually give up to fifteen Graduate Travel Awards for graduate student members of the Society. Each Awardee will receive a travel stipend of $1,000 USD.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the application for the 2020 Graduate Travel Awards has been postponed. Stay tuned for further information.


  • All current, Student Members whose dues are paid by 11:59 p.m. ET on May 31 are eligible to apply for the Graduate Travel Award.

    • Research summary (1,000 words + figure + references) that includes how the research fits into the “big picture.”

    • Summary must be written by the applicant.

    • A letter of support from a sponsor -- who must be a Fellow (who has paid 2020 dues) or Emeritus Fellow -- even if the sponsor is an author on the poster.


The deadline is May 31, 2020. Please submit nominations for consideration by the Program Committee so awardees can plan to attend and be recognized at the 2020 Annual Meeting of the Psychonomic Society in Austin, Texas, USA.
