Researchers in psychology know a lot about what it takes to be a healthy, happy person, but we’re not always great about sharing our knowledge. Scholars develop skills in producing fantastic research, but don’t often get opportunities to tell what they know outside of inaccessible research journals.
If you are a student of psychology (undergraduate or graduate level), you may have a dream project–something you’re putting on the “back-burner” until you wade through your education requirements. But as we know from our studies, dream projects may be forever relegated to tomorrow unless we make concrete steps toward our goals (SMART goals, anyone?). At Active Minds, dream projects get front-burner focus. Fellows are paired with national mentors–leaders in their field–to develop a creative project to share psychological research with the public. If you’re a dreamer who wants to do, consider applying, oh, here: Active Minds Emerging Scholars Fellowship.
