The Student Development Committee of the Society of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology is pleased to invite applications for our annual Student Achievement Awards in Research and the Graduate Student Achievement Award in Clinical Practice.
The award is intended to recognize an early career psychologist who has established a program of empirical research that has had a major impact on the field’s understanding of psychopathology, prevention, assessment, treatment, or public policy relative to child and adolescent development or mental health.
The intent of this award is to allow graduate students and ECP’s from diverse groups (e.g., ethnic and racial, sexual and gender diversity, individuals with a disability) the opportunity to attend a conference to gain professional skills and increase their professional network.
The Routh Dissertation Grant provides support for student research that shows promise to add significantly to the research literature in the area of clinical child and adolescent psychology. Up to four $2,500 grants will be awarded annually.
