Professional Development conference

If you're considering going to graduate school to study child development or family science (including fields of study such as Sociology, Psychology, and Education), you may want to look into Arizona State University's "Professional Development Conference for Undergraduates Interested in Graduate Training in Family and Child Sciences". This is an opportunity to learn about the field of child development and family science as well as receive information about the graduate school application process and develop a network of contacts of other students and faculty members in this area. This conference is specifically aimed at students who will be seniors in the Fall 2011 semester and are planning to enter a research-based doctoral program in some aspect of child development or family studies after graduation.

Students who are selected to attend this conference will have their travel and lodging expenses paid for by the program. This is pretty cool.

If you are interested, the program's website is here and the application instructions are here. The application deadline is March 1, 2011.
