Graduate students in the field of psychology have the same basic needs as undergraduates: you need to build strong professional networks and acquire resources for performing research. However, at the graduate level, everything becomes more specialized. A membership in Psi Chi offers you benefits that cannot be duplicated with any other organization.

Reasons to be an active Psi Chi member during graduate school:

  • Conventions and conferences allow you to enjoy presentations by world-famous and influential professionals, and give you the opportunity to present your own work.
  • The Psi Chi Journal of Psychological Research regularly publishes student contributions, opening the door for you to gain publishing experience to submit to other academic journals.
  • You often require funds to carry out research. Psi Chi offers over $400,000 in awards and grants to aid members in their scholastic pursuits. Members can apply for numerous grants, assistantships, internships, and awards.
  • Finally, you have access to an impressive network of professionals working in the field, faculty members, and other students through membership in Psi Chi.

"I looked forward to becoming a member because I believed the organization would benefit me as an undergraduate student. Now as a graduate student, I realize the organization continues to benefit me in multiple ways."

"I loved the communication and support that Psi Chi gave to students who are passionate about psychology—during school and beyond. Plus, reading Psi Chi's publication Eye on Psi Chi lead me to pursue psychological research as a career; I even got chills at the thought of being a researcher. I am starting graduate school this fall to pursue an MA (and possibly PhD) in Evaluation and Research in Applied Social Psychology.
