The Psychometric Society Travel Awards support travel to the International Meeting of the Psychometric Society (IMPS) for graduate students wishing to present their work at the conference.
Applications will be judged by the quality of methodological innovation or creative application of statistical analysis to an issue in psychometrics. The awardees will have their registration fees for IMPS waived and will receive $500 ($1,000 if intercontinental travel is required) to support their travel to the conference.
Eligible applicants must be graduate students at the time of the conference.
Applications for the award can be made when submitting an abstract for IMPS. The abstract submission deadline is February 15.
In addition to submitting an abstract, the applicant must submit the following via the abstract submission website:
- A cover letter including name, current affiliation, intended date of graduation, and contact information (address, telephone number, and email address)
- A 3-page summary of the research.
The selection panel will consist of several regular members of the Psychometric Society appointed by the Executive Committee. The candidates will be ranked and the top three will receive awards (possibly more depending on the availability of funds).
