The James Marshall Public Policy Fellowship supports a scholar who represents SPSSI in approved policy and advocacy activities. The Scholar splits time between SPSSI Central Office and the Government Relations Office of the American Psychological Association (APA) in Washington, D.C. The Scholar participates in supervised activities including using psychological research to (1) analyze specific social policies; (2) develop policy advocacy; and (3) work with SPSSI members on policy projects. The policy focus of this work varies from year to year as SPSSI and APA priorities shift and as the interests and expertise of the Scholar differ.
Applicants must hold a Ph.D. or Psy.D. and be either members of SPSSI and APA or eligible to be members. The recipient must join SPSSI before the term begins. Candidates must demonstrate interest or involvement in the application of social science to social issues and policies, have a sound scientific and/or clinical background, and demonstrate sensitivity toward policy issues.
