Dear Students, Post-docs, and Junior Faculty,

If you are doing research on alcohol use, we would like to invite you to apply for our early career travel award.  This award is for $750 to help defray costs to the 127th Annual Convention of the American Psychological Association, which will be held August 8-11, 2019, in Chicago, Illinois.  Awards are made possible through funding from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (R13 AA022858; PI: Hoeppner), which seeks to foster the development of the next generation of alcohol researchers. 

To apply, simply submit your proposal via APA’s online submission portal as you normally would. You can submit directly to Division 50 (Addiction Psychology) or your home division.  APA’s deadline for submission is December 3rd, 2018.

To be eligible for the travel award, proposals must focus on alcohol use or related problems. Additionally, applicants are required to be the first author on the paper or speaker in the symposium.  If your proposal is accepted by your division for presentation, you can apply for the travel award by emailing my Research Coordinator, Ms. Hannah Carlon, at hcarlon@mgh.harvard.eduThe deadline for applying for this travel award is February 15th, 2019.

If funded, presentations will be showcased at an Early Career Investigators Poster Session and Social Hour sponsored by the Society of Addiction Psychology (Division 50), Division 28 (Psychopharmacology and Substance Abuse), NIAAA, and NIDA.  That means that you will present your work twice at APA: during your regularly scheduled time, and additionally at our early career investigator poster session.

We strongly encourage you to apply.  We will be able to fund a total of 20 travel awards, and an additional 15 awards will be awarded for projects focusing on drug use other than alcohol through funding by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (R13DA038955; PI: Obasi).  The Early Career Investigators Poster Session and Social Hour is a superb opportunity to connect with your peers and leading scientists in the field of addiction.  We would love to have you be part at our 2019 Early Career Investigators Poster Session and Social Hour!

All the best,

Bettina Hoeppner
