This chapter is the first Psi Chi chapter in Canada, and our mandate is to provide our members with opportunities to earn grants and awards, connect with others who are involved in the psychological community, and get access to tips and resources that can help them study better and get accepted to grad school. Please explore our site to learn more about what Psi Chi is about, how to join, and why you can benefit by becoming a member.
This year we collaborated with the CPA graduate and undergraduate student representatives to host a workshop series: "Psychology How To's". These workshops are designed to provide students with the tools they need to succeed when completing such things as abstract writing, award and grant applications, and graduate school applications. We have received positive reviews from attendees of each of our workshops.

Applications to present at the 'UVic Psi Chi: Making Waves in Psychology Conference' are now closed. We look forward to reviewing the applications. If you missed this opportunity to apply, we will be posting information about a late-breaker poster application opportunity soon as well as information about volunteer opportunities.
On Monday, September 15, 2014, we will be hosting a Meet and Greet event for the Psychology Department. It will take place from 3:30-4:30 in Cornett A221. This is a chance for students interested in Psychology to meet with faculty and students of Psychology to learn about opportunities in the Psychology department, different program pathways, and where a degree in Psychology can take you. There will be free refreshments and a door prize too!
