Eligibility: BIPOC Students currently enrolled in an undergraduate, graduate, or post-doctoral level program at a Canadian university. Student nominees must be directly involved in the project or research. Students can submit an application or be nominated for this award. Preference will be given to nominees who are student members of the Community Psychology Section.

Application Procedure: Other students, faculty, or community members can submit a brief (no more than 500 words) report of the student they are nominating describing the project or research the student is currently involved in and how it contributes to social justice. Students can also self-nominate. Please submit an application directly to the Community Section Chair at jbeaulac@toh.ca. Annual Deadline is May 15.
