  • Public Policy Institute Registration Open and GPR Scholarships for Grad Students

    Registration for the 2015 GW/ NASP Public Policy Institute is now open!

    The Government and Professional Relations (GPR) Committee would like to announce two scholarship opportunities for school psychology graduate students. The Graduate Student Assistant Scholarship program will award two recipients complimentary registration for either the 3-day basic training or 5-day advanced training in exchange for their work supporting the set up and implementation of the PPI. Graduate Student Assistants will be selected based upon their interest in attending the institute, learning more about the operations that support grassroots advocacy, their personal desire to advocate for school psychology, and their willingness to volunteer before and during the institute in support of the logistics and planning of the PPI. (Note: All travel expenses are the responsibility of the graduate student assistant). All applications must be sent to Christina Koch via email, fax, or mail by May 1, 2015 and recipients will be selected by NASP’s Government and Professional Relations committee and staff and notified by email by May 10, 2015.

    The GPR Committee is also hosting an Advocacy in Action Contest. This will award one graduate student who is actively involved in professional and/or legislative advocacy a complimentary registration to the 3-day basic training. Students are encouraged to share examples of all recent advocacy efforts, however each student will only be entered into the drawing once. School Psychology graduate students who want to enter the contest should send their application along with supporting materials to Christina Koch via e-mail or fax by May 1, 2015.

    Applications can be found on the NASP website.

    Thanks,
    Christina
