Division Benefits to Early Career Psychologists

It can be quite intimidating to figure out where to start and how to network at APA. The divisions provide early career psychologists (ECPs) with the chance to connect and cultivate a professional identity around psychology subdisciplines or special topics.


Many divisions offer specific programs for ECPs, such as:

  • Professional development grants and awards.
  • Free first-year membership.
  • Opportunities for leadership development, mentoring and networking.
