5. JANET HYDE GRADUATE STUDENT RESEARCH GRANT
Proposals are being sought for Hyde Graduate Student Research Grants. These grants, each up to $500, are awarded to doctoral psychology students to support feminist research. The grants are made possible through the generosity of Janet Shibley Hyde, Ph.D., who donates the royalties from her book, Half the Human Experience, to this fund. Past recipients of Hyde Graduate Student Research Grants are not eligible to apply. Because the purpose of this award is to facilitate research that otherwise might not be possible, projects that are beyond the data analysis stage are not eligible.

8. ONLINE GRADUATE CERTIFICATE PROGRAM IN WORKING WITH SURVIVORS OF VIOLENCE, TORTURE, AND TRAUMA
I am writing to inform you about the new online Graduate Certificate Program in Working with Survivors of Violence, Torture, and Trauma (VTT) offered by the Counseling Psychology Program at the University of Maryland. VTT is a 4 course, 12 credit program designed for psychologists and other mental health professionals interested in increasing their knowledge and expertise in working with survivors of violence, torture and trauma. The courses are designed to meet the needs of busy working professional and graduate students.
In addition to exploring the psychological and treatment implications of torture and trauma more generally, the courses explore multicultural issues related to migration and acculturation. Specifically, the ways in which migration and acculturation shape the experience of torture, expression of trauma symptoms, and the process of treatment are explored. This program is appropriate for advanced graduate students (post-master’s level), and recent graduates.
Students also have the option of taking single courses rather than enrolling in the entire program.
Please see the email below and visit the website for more information http://oes.umd.edu/index.php?slab=slabid-514.
APPLICATIONS ARE NOW BEING ACCEPTED FOR FALL 2013. FOR BEST CONSIDERATION, PLEASE APPLY BY MARCH 30.

10. YOUR DEPARTMENT COULD WIN $2500 FOR ITS RECRUITMENT AND GRADUATION EFFORTS OF ETHNIC MINORITY DOC STUDENTS
This award will recognize three graduate departments that successfully recruit and graduate doctoral students who are U.S.-born ethnic minorities as well as U.S. residents born outside of the U.S. in regions such as the Middle East, Asia, Africa, the Caribbean and Latin America.
Deadline: April 1, 2013
Sponsor: APA Office of the President
2013 APA President Donald Bersoff, PhD, JD, has created an award to recognize graduate departments that successfully recruit and graduate doctoral students who are U.S.-born ethnic minorities as well as U.S. residents born outside of the U.S. in regions such as the Middle East, Asia, Africa, the Caribbean and Latin America. This initiative is a complement to the Suinn Minority Achievement Award, which is an annual award that recognizes programs with demonstrated excellence in the recruitment, retention and graduation of U.S.-born ethnic minority students. The Bersoff Presidential Initiative extends the scope of the Suinn Award globally to ensure that psychology’s workforce adequately reflects and is appropriately trained to work with the increasingly international population of the United States.
The three programs selected to receive this award will each receive $2,500 and be recognized during a special ceremony to be held at APA’s 2013 Annual Convention in Hawai’i.
President Bersoff’s vision for these awards is not only to honor the achievements of these exemplary programs, but also to “create a means for programs to learn from each other about how to attract and retain students from other countries and current ethnic minority groups.”
Programs will be assessed for the Bersoff Presidential Award to Multicultural Programs based on the following criteria:
- U.S. residents from other cultures and countries/ethnic minority faculty and student representation, e.g., data/percentages of recruitment, retention and graduation, especially over the last five years
- Departmental and university climate of support to promote multiculturalism, e.g., mentoring programs, financial and other resources reflecting support
- Multicultural-focused coursework and training experiences, such as multicultural research and/or applied experiences/practica in diverse communities; opportunities, including bilingual supervision, for students to develop linguistic competence in bilingual therapy
- Placement of students in internship, postdoctoral and early career settings that reflect the need for multicultural competence
How to Apply
In addition to describing a program’s qualifications according to the aforementioned criteria, letters of nomination should elaborate on efforts to recruit and retain a diverse class of doctoral students, ways in which they have been successful and lessons learned in those efforts. Nominations, including self-nominations, are invited from faculty from doctoral departments with a clinical or research focus or both. Every nomination MUST include at least one supporting letter from a current student in the program. Letters of nomination and supporting documentation should be submitted no later than April 1, 2013, to Sue Houston (firstname.lastname@example.org), Public Interest Directorate, American Psychological Association.

11. APA OFFERS ADVANCED TRAINING INSTITUTES FOR SUMMER
The American Psychological Association (APA) will sponsor four Advanced Training Institutes (ATIs) in the summer of 2013. These intensive training programs are hosted at research institutions across the country. They expose advanced graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, new and established faculty, and other researchers to state-of-the-art research methods and emerging technologies. Participants also have the opportunity to meet other scientists with related interests. The four ATIs are listed below. Complete information about these programs can be viewed on the Advanced Training Institutes website:
• Structural Equation Modeling in Longitudinal Research
University of California, Davis
May 28-June 1, 2013
Application Deadline: March 20
• Exploratory Data Mining in Behavioral Research
University of California, Davis
June 3-7, 2013
Application Deadline: March 20

Application Deadline: March 25
APA chose to sponsor these particular ATIs in response to continued interest among researchers. When offered previously, these ATIs drew substantial numbers of participants and received highly positive ratings. The ATIs on Structural Equation Modeling and Exploratory Data Mining will be held at UC Davis in consecutive weeks. In order to help make it feasible for people to attend both of these ATIs, participants who are accepted and register for both sessions will receive a 20% discount on their tuition for each institute. Tuition for each ATI ranges from $300 to $1200, with students, post-docs, and APA members paying lower tuitions. Participants may also apply for financial assistance. APA arranges for group rates at on-campus or nearby lodgings and encourages all ATI participants to stay at the same location. Prices for accommodations have been negotiated at competitive group rates. For the UC Davis and Michigan State ATIs, the institutes will be held in the same conference hotel as the group lodging. The Cincinnati ATI will be held on-campus and participants will have the option to stay in very economically priced on-campus housing. Note that ATI application deadlines begin in March. Applications are available at the Advanced Training Institute website and must be submitted electronically through each institute’s webpage:
