The Foundation for Personality and Social Psychology (FPSP), in collaboration with SAGE Publications, has announced the SAGE Young Scholars Awards 2015 recipients. The awardees receive a one-time award of $5,000 to be used at their discretion for research, study, or conference travel-related purposes. Five awards are presented each year to young scholars representative of the broad spectrum of personality and social psychology research areas.   
The enormous APA convention is not often the first conference that personality and social psychologists think about when they strategize about where to present their research.  There is a perception that only practicing clinicians attend APA.  While it’s true that the crowd is heavily clinical, there is also lots of great personality and social psychology that takes place as well.  At the 2014 convention, our division put on talks by Jamie Pennebaker, Wendy Wood, Phillip Zimbardo, Rebecca Shiner, Brian Nosek, Keith Humphreys, and many others.  There were symposia on implicit attitudes, emotion regulation, climate change, and personality development.
