Michael Silverstein, 2018 APAGS/Psi Chi Junior Scientist Fellow

September 20, 2018

Congratulations to Michael Silverstein on receiving a prestigious APAGS/Psi Chi Junior Scientist Fellowship!

Michael Silverstein is a 2nd year PhD student in clinical psychology, where he conducts research on risk factors for pediatric and adult PTSD and ADHD. He uses this research to inform his work on the implementation of psychosocial school-based interventions for at-risk youth in low income areas. Michael will use his APAGS/Psi Chi Junior Scientist Fellowship to fund his work in examining risk factors for PTSD. His career goals include research into risk factors for and the etiology of PTSD and trauma-related symptoms to inform science, policy, and practice.


The APAGS (American Psychological Association of Graduate Students)/Psi Chi Junior Scientist Fellowship provides funding for a first- or second-year graduate level project and offers constructive feedback to select applicants to increase their chances of achieving success with a future National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship application. The intent is to recognize outstanding research-oriented students who are entering their first year (or first semester of second year) of graduate study and to help them begin successful research programs in addition to providing written feedback to select applicants to strengthen their NSF graduate fellowship application.
