Hey all,

Any thoughts on these pages in applications?
What do they expect you to put on this page?
What counts as an honor or award?
Do most people have them? All I have, really, that I would think of is an undergraduate research grant and I have a couple of presentations and a 1st author publication in the works! ...Or is there likely something I am overlooking that I ought to put on this page?

I think they mean psychology departmental awards, Phi Beta Kappa membership, any academic honors, papers published, etc.

What you put down sounds fine and impressive in its own right.

Pretty simple...its for awards and honors you've won:)
Things like honors societies, travel awards, scholarships, etc.

I think the grant fits, but presentations/publications don't go there (though they are quite impressive and should obviously be included elsewhere).
