Section on Addiction Psychology: Awards

1. Diversifying Addiction Psychology Travel Award

Amount: $500

Information: This award recognizes that psychology has historically excluded certain groups (Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour; LGTBQ2S+; people of disabilities) and that diversifying the field of Addiction Psychology will have a tremendous impact in our field. To increase representation in the field of Addiction Psychology, we are pleased to offer one (1) travel award to a student (undergraduate or graduate) who self-identify as being a member of one (or more) of the historically excluded groups in psychology. This award will provide an opportunity for the winner to present their research at CPA’s Annual Convention and will be adjudicated by the Addiction Psychology Executive Team to the most meritorious abstract submission.

Application Procedure: All students who self-identify as being a member of a historically excluded group in psychology will be eligible for the award. The student must be a member in good standing of CPA’s Addiction Psychology Section.
