We are very happy to announce that three Behavioral Neuroscience Ph.D. candidates - Gabriela Alarcón, Leah Hitchcock, and Melanie Pina - received notification that their 2014 American Psychological Association Dissertation Research Award applications were successful.

The current program includes 30-40 grants of $1,000 each, along with several larger grants of up to $5,000 to students whose dissertation research reflects excellence in scientific psychology.

Leah will receive $2,750. Melanie and Gaby will receive $1,000 each.
