Student Poster Award

The APS 2021 Convention will be held virtually from May 26-27th and we would love to see you present your research as part of our SSCP Student Poster Competition! Multiple $200 and $100 awards will be given for the winners and distinguished contributions after posters are presented to SSCP member judges. If you would like to have your poster considered for the SSCP student poster session, select ‘SSCP Poster’ in the first step after you select poster and start new submission. There are three types of SSCP Student Poster Awards (Note: each poster can only be considered for one of these three awards) 

General SSCP Student Poster Award - The general SSCP student poster award submission can deal with any area within scientific clinical psychology (e.g., the etiology or correlates of psychopathology, assessment/diagnosis, clinical judgment, psychiatric classification, psychotherapy process or outcome, prevention, psychopharmacology). Please be sure to provide enough relevant detail in the summary so that reviewers can adequately judge the originality of the study, the soundness of the theoretical rationale and design, the quality of the analyses, the appropriateness of the conclusions, and so on.

SSCP Diversity Student Poster Award - Applicants for the SSCP diversity student poster award submission may be a member of a diverse group (broadly defined), be presenting on diversity related scientific clinical psychology research (e.g., research on any underrepresented or marginalized visible or invisible identity), or both. Members of all underrepresented and marginalized groups are encouraged to apply. Please be sure to provide enough relevant detail in the summary so that reviewers can adequately judge the originality of the study, the soundness of the theoretical rationale and design, the quality of the analyses, the appropriateness of the conclusions, and so on.

SSCP Global Mental Health Student Poster Award - Any research - empirical or review - set in a low-and-middle-income country (LMIC) may be considered for the SSCP Global Mental Health Student Poster Award. Research should be original and not previously published or submitted.


To be eligible to submit an SSCP poster, the first author of the poster must be a student and must be a member of SSCP at the time of submission. The research and analyses presented in the poster submission must be completed (i.e., submissions containing such language as “Data will be collected….” will not be considered). Submissions to the SSCP student poster session must be completed by March 1. You will also be contacted by email in late April to submit a copy of the final version of your poster and audio recording by May 12, 2021.
