The Francis M. Culbertson Travel Grant supports women from developing countries who are in the earliest stages of their careers. Limited resources in developing countries make it difficult for early-career psychologists to keep abreast of the latest information in psychology. By providing travel funds to attend international and regional conferences, the Culbertson Grant seeks to afford opportunities to women in developing countries. Applicants must have a doctoral degree (PhD/PsyD/EdD) and be within 10 years postdoctoral.
