The Education Directorate and the American Psychological Association of Graduate Students worked to raise awareness of and make strides toward solving the internship imbalance.
The Education Directorate and the American Psychological Association of Graduate Students (APAGS) worked extensively over the past year to promote more quality internship positions for psychology graduate students. The effort paid off when the APA Council of Representatives approved the allocation of up to $3 million over three years for a small grant program to assist internship sites with the accreditation process. This program will potentially add up to 500 APA-accredited slots to promote quality assurance in training.
