North Star Student Award

The North Star Student Award has been established by the Rural and Northern Psychology Section to recognize the student with the most meritorious submission to the Rural and Northern Section of the CPA annual convention. Any student whose presentation/poster has been accepted into the Rural and Northern Psychology Section Program is encouraged to apply. The winning submission will be recognized with a certificate and a monetary award. The student will also be invited to describe his/her work in the fall issue of the Rural and Northern Psychology Newsletter, The View from Here: Perspectives on Northern and Rural Psychology.

To be eligible for this award you must:

  • Notify the Section Chair that you wish to be considered for this award.
  • Be prepared to attend an award ceremony at the convention.
  • Be a member of the Rural and Northern Psychology Section at the time of the submission.
