THE BARBARA A. KIRK AWARD is presented in recognition of outstanding student-initiated research (dissertation or other). The award, which includes a cash award, was established to honor the late Barbara A. Kirk. To be eligible, a graduate student must conduct and produce independent research while enrolled in a counseling psychology program. The research can be submitted up to one year after graduation. The nominee must be the principal author of the research. Nominations should include (and be limited to) the following: (1) a nomination letter discussing the significance of the nominee’s contributions to counseling psychology; and (2) either a full length manuscript in APA style (as one would submit for publication), a published article, or an 1,800 word summary of the research (as one would submit for an APA convention proposal).
THE DONALD E. SUPER FELLOWSHIP is awarded to support dissertation research on a topic related to career development and is accompanied by a cash award. Only doctoral students enrolled in counseling psychology programs are eligible. Because the Fellowship is intended to support recipients during their tenure as students, the anticipated completion date for the dissertation should not fall before the award date (i.e., at the annual convention of APA). Nominations should include (and be limited to) the following: (1) a nomination letter discussing the significance of the nominee’s contributions to counseling psychology; (2) an APA-style (6th edition) formatted version of the student’s dissertation proposal not to exceed 30 pages; and (3) an approval of the proposal signed by the dissertation committee members. The Fellowship will be awarded based on the quality of the dissertation proposal and its potential for advancing knowledge in the area of career development.
