IPA has two competitive programs to offer psychology students, both graduate and undergraduate, an opportunity to present their work at our Annual Convention.  Both are part of The Dr. Mark Roberts' IPA Student Research Presentation Program:  1) An Oral Presentation Opportunity for Graduate Students and 2) A Poster Presentation Competition for both graduate and undergraduate students.  

We encourage you to review the details on each program below.   We hope to see you presenting soon!

Oral Presentation Opportunity for Graduate Students


Due to COVID-19, IPA's Annual Convention 2021 will be held virtually. 
These presentations will be held via Zoom late afternoon on Friday, April 16.  Presenters will be allowed 5-7 minutes
and a maximum of 5 PowerPoint slides.  More details will be provided closer to the event date.

IPA has two openings at its Annual Convention for students to make oral research presentations.  This competitive opportunity is reserved for Idaho's psychology graduate students.    

Acceptable Topics:  Experimental Research, Clinical Research, and Applied Projects

To Apply:  Please submit an abstract with the following headings and information:

  • Presentation title (limit to 10 words);  
  • Purpose, methods, results & conclusions (limit to 250 words); 
  • Presenting author’s information (please include full name, undergraduate or graduate status, snail mailing address, e-mail address & phone numbers); and
  • Name of psychology faculty advisor.

Please indicate on your submission if you wish for this project to be considered for the poster competition, too.   You will not need to bring a poster, unless you are participating in the poster contest.

Applicants for this competition are not required to be student members of IPA; however, we'd welcome your interest in membership.

Award:   $75 will be awarded to each of the selected presenters.  

Submission Deadline & Information:  Abstracts will be accepted starting at noon on February 15 and must be received by noon on March 12.  Submissions should be sent in pdf format to the IPA Office at IPAoffice@idahopsych.org.

Notification of IPA's Decision:  IPA will provide feedback to applicants by March 29.  IPA reserves the right to adjust the number of oral presentations, depending upon the quality of abstracts received and/or time available in the Convention schedule.   

Presentation Details:  If selected, you will be asked to immediately submit a 3-4 sentence biography.  This may include where you are from, where you are in your training, what your dream job would be in psychology and what attracted you to this research topic.  Send this information to the IPA Office by April 5.  This information will be used to introduce you to the audience.  Presentations should be 5-7 minutes in length, accompanied by a maximum of five PowerPoint slides and followed by a 3-minute question and answer period.  Ordinarily, a laptop, LCD projector and wireless lapel mic are provided; however, since we're virtual this year, presenters will need a way to present via Zoom.  A practice session will be scheduled.  Please submit a pdf of your PowerPoint presentation to the IPA office by April 5 for distribution to attendees.        

Day of Presentation:  These presentations are scheduled for late Friday afternoon.  You will be provided with a Zoom link and we encourage you to log-on 15 minutes early.   Business attire is recommended.


Student presenters are encouraged to register and attend the entire Convention, as the topics are ones that most will come across in their professional work.  Student registration fees vary depending upon the location of the Convention because our costs change (e.g. a breakfast is less expensive in a hospital meeting room than at a Resort or hotel).  For planning purposes, early registration rates for students are typically $70-110 for both days of Convention; however, they will be much lower for this virtual event.  IPA student members get a discount, so their rates would be on the lower end of that range.  One day Convention rates are also available for students.  Learn more about scholarships for Convention registration here.     

It is our goal that you find your experience with IPA supportive and welcoming, as you are the future of the psychology profession.  If you have any questions about the above, about student membership or about the Convention, please contact us here.   

 


 Poster Presentation Competition for Undergraduate &      
 Graduate Psychology Students




Due to COVID-19, IPA's Annual Convention 2021 will be held virtually. 
Consequently, the poster session will be virtual, too.  We're planning to offer a slide show of all student posters for 
 
attendees to view a few days before the Convention starts and/or during the lunch break on Saturday.  In addition,
students will be scheduled to meet with the judges via Zoom to answer questions on their project for the competition. 
Winners will be announced on Saturday afternoon around 2:15PM. 

The poster competition at IPA's Annual Convention has two categories:  undergraduate and graduate.  

Acceptable Topics:  Experimental Research, Clinical Research, and Applied Projects

To Apply:  Please submit an abstract with the following headings and information:

  • Presentation title (limit to 10 words);  
  • Purpose, methods, results & conclusions (limit to 250 words); 
  • Presenting author’s information (please include full name, undergraduate or graduate status, snail mailing address, e-mail address & phone numbers); and
  • Name of psychology faculty advisor.

Applicants for this competition are not required to be student members of IPA; however, we'd welcome your interest in membership.

Awards:  $75 will be awarded to the winner of each competition category: undergraduate and graduate.

Submission Deadline & Information:  Abstracts will be accepted starting noon on February 15 and must be received by noon on March 12.  Submissions should be sent in pdf format to the IPA Office at IPAoffice@idahopsych.org.   

Notification of IPA's Decision:  IPA will provide feedback to applicants by March 29.   

Poster Details:   A slide of your poster should be landscape oriented (4:3) and sent in pdf format to the IPA Office by April 5.  Please put your references in a pdf handout for distribution to the judges and attendees.  

Evaluation Criteria: Professionalism (visual presentation & audience interaction), conceptualization (theoretical foundation & clear hypotheses), methodology, conclusions, and overall value to the field.   

Day of Presentation:   Your poster will be made available through a slide show to attendees prior to the Convention and at the lunch break on Saturday.  Your presentation to the judges will be made via Zoom and will be scheduled closer to the event date.   Business attire is recommended.   

Student presenters are encouraged to register and attend the entire Convention, as the topics are ones that most will come across in their professional work.  Student registration fees vary depending upon the location of the Convention because our costs change (e.g. a breakfast is less expensive in a hospital meeting room than at a Resort or hotel).  For planning purposes, early registration rates for students are typically $70-110 for both days of Convention; however, they will be much lower for this virtual event.  IPA student members get a discount, so their rates would be on the lower end of that range.  One day Convention rates are also available for students.  Learn more about scholarships for Convention registration here.   If you are not able to attend the full Convention, we hope you will make every effort to support your fellow students by attending the other student presentations (e.g. the oral presentations on Friday afternoon).
