Attention SIOP Students: Do You Know YOUR Opportunities?


by SIOP Administrative Office

Apply for SIOP Awards Before It’s Too Late

Hey, Student Affiliates! If you’re not applying for the funding opportunities offered by the SIOP Foundation, you’re missing out!

Nominations and applications for the 2020 SIOP and SIOP Foundation awards, scholarships, and research grants are now being accepted until June 30, 2019.

Don’t miss this opportunity to submit your research project for an award or grant, apply for scholarship funding to help with the expense of carrying out your dissertation research, or nominate a deserving colleague.

Applying for the scholarships and fellowship requires putting together quite a bit of materials, so you should start ASAP. And except for the Thornton Scholarship, the package requires a letter of nomination from your program or department chair—and each program can only nominate one student. Unsure if you’re eligible?
