SCCAP Routh Dissertation Grant Recipients & Honorable Mentions

The SCCAP Board of Directors is honored to be able to offer many different types of awards for SCCAP student members. The Routh Dissertation Grant provides support for student research that shows promise to add significantly to the literature in the area of clinical child and adolescent psychology. 

On behalf of the SCCAP Board, I would like to thank all of the applicants, the numerous reviewers who carefully read each application, and the many of you who wrote letters of recommendation. Based on the outstanding pool of applications we received, it is clear that the future of clinical child and adolescent psychology is in good hands!
