We wanted to share with you a really great opportunity being offered to all SSCP student members through APS. Now through the end of 2013, APS is offering complimentary student membership to all SSCP student members (i.e., current dues-paying student members) who are not already APS members. You will get to take full advantage of all of the benefits of APS student membership, including the first year of the new Clinical Science journal at no cost, as well as discounted registration fees for the annual convention!
To sign up, please fill out the form at http://www.joinaps.org/?p=SSCP13&s=join.
See Alan Kraut’s letter below for more information.
We hope you will all take advantage of this great opportunity, a gesture that clearly demonstrates how much clinical science students are valued by APS!

Dear SSCP Student Member,
Like SSCP, APS has a stake in advancing clinical science. This year, following months of discussion with APS and Congress, the National Science Foundation (NSF) changed its rules for the Graduate Research Fellows Program (GRFP) to allow students from clinical psychology programs to apply. It was a sea change at NSF, but one that properly reflects a sea change taking place in the field.
Other indicators? How about the new accreditation system for clinical science, the Psychological Clinical Science Accreditation System (PCSAS), that APS helped develop and proudly supports? Or our new journal for 2013 - Clinical Psychological Science – to publish advances in clinical science and provide a venue for cutting-edge research across a wide range of conceptual views, approaches, and topics. And don't forget all the clinical science at the APS Convention. Here is a sample of what happened in 2012:http://www.psychologicalscience.org/r/clinical
In celebration of all that has been accomplished on behalf of clinical science, I would like to offer SSCP student members who are not already APS members a chance to join APS at no charge (we hope our current APS clinical science students understand). This is a no-strings, complimentary membership through the end of 2013 (so you will get the first year of the new Journal for free, too). Just click the link below and fill out the form.
