ArPA always values student participation at the Fall Conference! Student participation has been phenomenal over the years! ArPA would like to build on this momentum by expanding student involvement in the conference. In addition to graduate and undergraduate student posters that will be displayed all day on Thursday, it is with great pleasure that we invite graduate students of psychology and related disciplines to submit their research for review and three papers will be chosen to present during the conference. We are excited to learn about all of the wonderful graduate research being done in the state! This is an excellent opportunity for a graduate student to present his/her research at a conference, build his/her CV, and engage in scholarly dialogue regarding research. Students are welcome to submit papers based on thesis/dissertation projects, collaborative research with faculty, and other research projects completed through coursework.

GRADUATE STUDENTS: Please submit either a poster or paper presentation. Please do not submit the same project as a poster and paper; however, you are welcome to submit two different projects – one poster and one paper.
