SASP Student Research Forum

About the Student Research Forum

The Student Research Forum (SRF) is held annually in conjunction with the APA Convention. The SRF provides opportunities for prospective and current school psychology students to learn from and network with colleagues in the field and present their research. Traditionally, the Student Research Forum includes a keynote address, student poster presentations, and fruitful opportunities for professional networking.

Submission Process

We are currently accepting submissions for poster presentations covering a range of topics. Possible categories include:

  • Assessment
  • Mental Health
  • Professional Issues
  • Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
  • Intervention/Prevention
  • Consultation

Submissions should reflect original empirical research or theoretical arguments, have clear applications/implications for the practice of (or training in) school psychology, and have not been previously presented at other conferences. 

Depending on the format, accepted proposals will be presented either virtually or in person. Either presentation format allows presenters to display their research and engage in discussions about the author’s work. Presentations generally range from 10-20 minutes in length, including time for discussion. SASP will send detailed instructions to assist presenters in preparing materials in the required format for those with accepted proposals. 

Please adhere to APA’s Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct, specifically Standard 8: Research and Publication when conducting and presenting research.
