SCRA's National Student Representatives, with the approval of the Executive Committee, have created more domestic travel awards for students interested in attending Society of Community Research and Action programming at the American Psychological Association (APA) Convention or at one of the regional
Ecological Conferences. A total of 16 domestic travel awards will be given out ($300 each; 3 APA awards, 5 ECO awards, and 8 SCRA biennial awards). All amounts are in USD. The APA conference is scheduled for August 12-15, 2010 in San Diego, California. The regional Ecological conferences will be held around the U.S. in the Fall of 2010 and the Biennial will be held in June 2011. SCRA Eco and Biennial dates and calls for proposals will be posted to the SCRA listserv and website, www.scra27.org.
