APS members:
The Association for Psychological Science provides generous financial support of the Institute, which benefits all participants, and also encourages its members to attend and participate in the conference. APS regular members may register for $540 ($590 after November 15) and APS student affiliates for $360 ($410 after November 15) if the participant is employed half-time or less and copies of the student’s current student ID and Fall 2017 class schedule are submitted by email at the time of registration. APS reimburses the Institute for the remaining $30 of these registration fees so all student registration fees are $390 or $440, if all three criteria above are satisfied.
Retirees and Students:
Retired faculty members may register for $390 ($440 after November 15). Graduate and undergraduate students may register for $390 ($440 after November 15) if they are employed half time or less and if copies of a current student ID and a Fall 2017 class schedule are submitted by email at the time of registration.
Early Career Scholarships:
Participants who have been gainfully employed in teaching positions for fewer than three years (excluding any years of teaching during graduate school) may apply for a $100 reduction in the registration fee. To apply for a NITOP Early Career Scholarship, submit a one-page essay about what you see as the challenges and/or opportunities facing new teachers of psychology, along with a letter from your academic unit’s executive officer confirming that your teaching experience at all institutions totals less than three years. Email these materials to or fax them to 813-973-2835. Applicants will be notified promptly of the outcome of the review. These scholarships will be available until registration reaches 375 participants, but to assure your place at this year’s Institute, please apply early.
The buffet reception on January 3rd is open to the companions and families of participants. However, children under 16 years of age may not accompany you to any other Institute sessions, meals, coffee breaks, or poster sessions.
