Below you will find information to help both students who are interested in Military Psychology and those who are seeking career information and opportunities. You also may find updated and useful information on our student website.


Student membership in Div. 19 can provide many benefits. Student members will receive our quarterly journal, Military Psychology, and our biannual newsletter, The Military Psychologist, as well as membership on our division email list.

In addition, membership in the division ensures your eligibility to apply for student awards. The division also provides opportunities for mentorship, networking and organizational participation within a diverse community of both clinical and research psychologists.

Are You a Student Interested in Conducting Military-related Research?

The Consortium Research Fellows Program (CRFP) is a partnership between the Consortium of Universities of the Washington Metropolitan Area and several Department of Defense agencies. The CRFP fosters a strong relationship between the higher education community and the Department of Defense.

Student Awards

The Society for Military Psychology is proud to support students conducting research in the field of military psychology. Our division sponsors an annual research grant of $1500 for a student project demonstrating excellence in the field and provides travel grants of $750 to help defray students' cost of travel to the annual APA convention.


We've prepared three webpages to help you locate information about careers in military psychology.
