Contribute to the Education Advocacy Trust!
Why Your Contribution Matters
Supporting EdAT ensures the success of the psychology community’s efforts to build legislative support for quality psychology education, including the allocation of funds to federal grant programs that directly support psychology education and training. Access to key policymakers is needed to promote psychology as an essential health profession and integral to an efficient, effective, integrated approach to health care will be limited, as Education Directorate staff cannot fully engage in the political process necessary to advance psychology’s agenda without this legal mechanism in place.
What Are the Benefits of Joining the Education Advocacy Trust?
- Play a leadership role in advancing psychology’s edu cation advocacy agenda. Contributions to EdAT enables EdAT staff and members to promote and participate in direct meetings with Members of Congress for the purpose of discussing psychology education and training issues/concerns.
- Level the playing field and ensure psychology’s place at the table. Help secure federal grants to support psychology doctoral/postdoctoral education and training; gain recognition of psychology’s contributions to health, as well as teaching and learning, through federal legislation and appropriations.
- Ensure psychology’s competitiveness with other health professions and disciplines. Help ensure psychology’s full participation in federal loan forgiveness and scholarships programs (e.g., the National Health Service Corps).
