Instructions to applicants and nominators: Graduate and undergraduate students planning to apply to graduate student in psychology or a related field who identify as members of groups that are underrepresented in academia are invited to apply for the Couples Special Interest Group (Couples SIG) of the Association of Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT) Underrepresented Scholars Fund. Applications may also be submitted on behalf of students by faculty advisors and/or mentors. Groups considered to be underrepresented in academia vary across funding agencies (e.g., NIH, NSF, the Ford Foundation, etc.) and stages of professional development (e.g., graduate school applications, FAFSA, Higher Education Act, etc.). The intent of this fund is to define underrepresented broadly based on, but not limited to, racial/ethnic identity, sex, gender, sexual identity, first generation college student status, and socioeconomic background. If you have any questions about whether you are eligible, please contact the chair of the Underrepresented Scholars Fund. This fund is intended to support the professional development of underrepresented scholars who plan to conduct research on romantic relationships and/or provide relationship-based psychotherapeutic services in their careers.
Questions about the application should be directed to the chair of the Couples SIG Underrepresented Scholars Fund, Brian Baucom (firstname.lastname@example.org), and/or to the Couples SIG Co-Presidents. Please complete the application and return it to Brian Baucom via email.
The Underrepresented Scholars Fund application deadline is TBD. Please fill out the application below and send it to email@example.com to be considered.
