the Yang Kuo-Shu Travel Grant

On August 2, 2023, the 2nd resolution of the management committee of 112 was revised and passed


In order to promote the research of indigenous psychology among Chinese people and reward research that reflects the characteristics of Chinese culture or social context, six "Yang Kuo-Shu Travel Grants" will be awarded annually to students (including undergraduate and graduate students) who present papers at the psychological annual conference that demonstrate the spirit of indigenous Chinese psychology. Each grant recipient will receive 5,000 yuan and a certificate of award.
